A Moderated Discussion with Members of the Chauvin Trial Team

The Chauvin trial was perhaps the most significant trial in Minnesota history and the much of the world watched it.  While it was a criminal case, three local private practice attorneys set aside their practices to prosecute the Chauvin case pro bono. Jerry Blackwell is a full-time civil litigator, who founded his own firm Blackwell Burke, focusing on product liability. Steve Schleicher, a former prosecutor, is currently Maslon LLP’s Co-chair of Government & Internal Investigations Group, with practice areas including business litigation and tort & product liability.  Lola Velazquez-Aguilu, also a former prosecutor, is currently Lead Counsel, Brain Modulation at Medtronic, working on litigation and investigations.

We are honoring these excellent litigators, who answered the call to help serve justice, epitomizing the Section’s theme for 2021 – “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Their participation advanced the cause of under-represented groups everywhere… in the criminal justice system, in the civil litigation system, and most significantly in the realm of social justice. 

This CLE is approved for credit through October 12, 2023.
