Total Price: $30.00

Deadline to Register:  Monday, October 19, 2015 

Approximately 60% of the contested case hearings at the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) involve self-represented litigants.  Last year the Administrative Law Section co-sponsored a CLE on the Civil Gideon movement in Minnesota.  Advocacy for the civil right to counsel for cases involving basic needs continues to grow in Minnesota.  However, there is still much work to be done.  In the meantime, many individuals continue to represent themselves in administrative proceedings where the outcome has a significant impact on their livelihood.  This CLE will provide participants with an update on the civil right to counsel movement in Minnesota, an overview of the numbers and types of cases involving self-represented litigants at OAH, and information on a new pro bono panel for contested case hearings sponsored by the MSBA Administrative Law Section. Come learn about this excellent and exciting new volunteer opportunity for attorneys of all experience levels. 

A light breakfast of coffee and rolls will be provided.
