Late August/early September is usually the time when Minnesotans across the state gather for the Great Minnesota Get Together. Unfortunately, this year, our reality is much different. However, the Public Law Section is here to provide you with CLEs and connectivity in the State Fair’s place. Sure, we might not be able to offer cheese curds, turkey legs, or Pronto Pups, but we can offer high quality and timely CLE programming that is relevant to you and your practice.

Join us for a three-day CLE series that covers everything from the upcoming election, student loans in the wake of COVID-19, and EEOC guidance related to COVID-19 issues. The CLE series will wrap up on the fourth day with a virtual award recognition ceremony where we will honor those who distinguished themselves by their significant and outstanding contributions to public service and the public practice of law in 2019-2020.

So, grab your own lunch (deep fryers and sticks optional) and tech device of choice, and join other public law attorneys over the lunch hour* for our Public Law CLE on a Stick Series from September 1 through September 4.

*the first CLE on September 1st begins at 11:45am. The other programs will begin at 12pm.

Session One: George Floyd, Covid-19, and the 2020 Elections and Beyond

The Covid-19 pandemic and the death of George Floyd changed everything and nothing in American politics. This talk examines how both impacted the 2020 elections in terms of the issues and the way politics, campaigns, and voting are conducted. Emphasis will be on discussing the significance of the 2020 elections and how in many ways it is still all about Donald Trump and what a handful of voters in approximately seven states will decide.


David Schultz | Professor in the Department of Political Science and Legal Studies at Hamline University and a professor of Law at the University of Minnesota.
