Longtime lobbyist Chris Micheli stops by the Capitol Weekly Podcast to talk with Tim Foster and John Howard about his new book: A Practitioner’s Guide to Lobbying and Advocacy in California.

Micheli, a lawyer and an adjunct professor at the University of the Pacific’s McGeorge School of Law, notes that lobbying is a unique profession: no official training required, no specific level of academic achievement and no certification of qualification. Yet, lobbyists play a crucial role in the creation and implementation of the public policy that governs our lives.

Micheli and co-editor Ray LeBov compiled and edited the book with contributions from many of their esteemed colleagues, including Aaron Read, Jennifer Fearing, Mike Belote, Shari and Gavin McHugh, Mike Madrid, Erin Niemela, and many others.
