Join your colleagues and members of the appellate judiciary for an outdoor social hour, followed by our annual meeting, dinner, and a CLE. 

The Ground Yet Unplowed: Big Cases of the Next Decade

What will be the most interesting state constitutional and statutory issues litigated in the next decade?  In defiance of physicist Niels Bohr’s admonition that “Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future,” former Justice David Lillehaug will take a crack at prognosticating what new subjects will be featured in the syllabi of Minnesota appellate opinions.

Lillehaug sat on the Minnesota Supreme Court from 2013-2020.  His background includes a stint as United States Attorney, more than 25 years of complex litigation practice, and a degree with honors from Harvard Law School.  He now practices part-time as senior counsel at Fredrikson & Byron, P.A.
