Associate Membership is designed for non-U.S. law firms that do an extensive amount of media defense work, but may, as well, on occasion, represent legacy clients in cases against the press. Some, such as English barristers, are attorneys whose professional ethical obligations require them to accept cases on behalf of claimants.  Associate members support MLRC's free expression mission and the strengthening of protections for a free and independent press.


Annual membership:  $1,250 ($500 for firms with fewer than five lawyers)
