On April 26, 2012, the MSBA Assembly approved the creation of the Military & Veterans Affairs Section. The Section replaces the MSBA Military Law Committee and will focus on:
(1) educating its members and members of the Minnesota State Bar Association about the practice of military law and veterans affairs and relevant issues impacting this practice;
(2) providing opportunities for its members to communicate with and educate one another in-person and via electronic means; and
(3) improving and enhancing the practice of military law and veterans affairs in the Minnesota legal community to better serve our community and current and former service members.
The Military & Veterans Affairs Section Council, led by Chair John Baker, is in the process of planning CLE programs and networking opportunities for the 2012-13 bar year. The Section will launch an email discussion list in the near future and plans to continue pro bono efforts and collaboration with the Minnesota Veterans Courts.
MSBA members are eligible and encouraged to join the new Section. Dues are $28.00 and membership is valid through June 30, 2013. Click here to join the Military & Veterans Affairs Section.
