Hennepin County Bar Foundation. Est. 1968


Making a Difference in Hennepin County

The Fellows are licensed attorneys who have been admitted to a bar for at least five years and have shown strong commitment to increasing access to justice in Hennepin County.

Only 1% of HCBA members are nominated each year.
Honor and Recognition-
Fellows are an esteemed group of local attorneys, recognized by their peers, for dedication and commitment to increasing access to justice.
Making an Impact-
Fellows support programs that have significant impact in the community. 
Each year, the HCBF gives grants to local nonprofits that work to provide legal access and support to those in need. This year, the HCBF gave out 25 grants. 
Network Building-
Fellows are invited to exclusive events, such as a Bar Benefit pre-reception in March and Fellows breakfast in May.

Attorneys are invited to become Fellows by contributing $1,500 to the Hennepin County Bar Foundation over a five-year period. HCBF Past President Vince Louwagie also recruited 15 one-time Founding Fellows who each contribute $5,000 to the foundation over a five-year period.
