Keeping with the spirit of the holiday season, we invite you to learn more about immigration and immigration-related pro bono opportunities, connect with local non-profits, and rebut some of your presumptions that may be holding you back from giving back through pro bono work.  This CLE presentation will feature speakers from International Institute of Minnesota, Battered Women's Legal Advocacy Project, Volunteer Lawyers Network and Community Action Partnership of Suburban Hennepin. The CLE will be immediately followed by a networking mixer where attendees will have the opportunity to network with the organizations listed above along with representatives from the Advocates for Human Rights, Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota and Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid.

Please join us for a networking mixer following the CLE from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Minnesota State Bar Association.
