Reducing Barriers to Justice- Civil Legal Services in Minnesota

Event Description

This CLE is co-sponsored by the MSBA Access to Justice Committee and the Civil Litigation Section.

Civil legal service programs in our state play an essential role in meeting the basic legal needs of Minnesotans of limited means, seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, the LGBTQ community, and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. Civil legal services responded quickly to the pandemic, implementing responsive programming and making technological improvements with CARES Act funding. Learn more about the innovative programs and services that help ensure civil justice in the lives of Minnesotans.
