Creation and Purpose

The Libertarian Leadership School is an educational program instituted by the Libertarian Party of the United States. The site on it's creation:

"At the August 2005 Kansas City meeting of the Libertarian National Committee (LNC), the LNC voted to provide the state affiliates technical assistance and training. As a result, the Libertarian Leadership School (LLS) was created to fulfill these requirements while opening the door to everyone who desires political training." It was defunct by the 2008 LNC term.

The LLS as it is called was "developed the LLS to train prospective candidates, campaign staff, party members and activists in a variety of topics directly related to winning elections and moving public policy in a libertarian direction."
