The Hennepin County Bar Memorial is a time-honored tradition, over 100 years, that honors and celebrates the lawyers and judges who passed away in the past year.

This annual special session of the Hennepin County District Court welcomes family members, colleagues, and friends to remember and recognize members of the profession who have gone before us.
