Office of General Counsel


The General Counsel's Office provides legal advice and representation to the National Religious Craig_Parshall_Testify_web4x6.jpgBroadcasters. This office is headed by Craig Parshall, NRB's Senior Vice President and General Counsel. The General Counsel also oversees the drafting and filing of legal and regulatory documents for NRB, including some filings in the Federal Communications Commission and those in the court system that advance the mission of the association in keeping the doors of electronic communications open for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Specifically, our General Counsel advances NRB's interests in matters pertaining to First Amendment freedoms, and relevant media policy issues. The General Counsel's Office also provides legal analysis and research to members of Congress, agencies, and cooperating organizations on matters pertinent to NRB's mission, and participates in filing Amicus Curiae ("friend of the court") briefs in pending cases, including select ones before the U.S. Supreme Court.

NRB’s 2010 Summer “externs,” Michelle “MG” Waddell (left) and Jeremy Lemon, both from the Liberty University School of Law. They’re joined by their mentors for the summer, NRB Sr. Vice President & General Counsel Craig Parshall (second from left), and NRB Vice President of Government Relations Bob Powers (far right). Says Parshall: “MG and Jeremy are part of a small army of future lawyers being trained not only in the ‘nuts and bolts’ of legal practice, but also in the Biblical roots of our Western law traditions. It will be up to them and their generation to try to reverse the dangerous trajectory of America’s current legal ship of state.” Though we will leave them a ship with tattered sails and a broken rudder, to them I say, Godspeed, and may your tribe increase.”
