Civil Litigation Section

Helpful Practice Links

The practice of law in these high tech times requires the practitioner to keep abreast of many information resources. To that end, the Civil Litigation Section has compiled a list of helpful website "Links" below.

We understand that the utility of these links is dependent upon whether the list contains the most helpful sites and whether it is kept up to date. We encourage all who use these links to help us improve and update then. Accordingly, if you have a suggested change or come across an out-of-commission website, please let us know with a quick e-mail to: jcarter@mnbar.org.
