The Civil Right to Counsel Movement in Minnesota

Event Description

Deadline to Register:  January 6, 2021

This CLE provides an overview of civil right to counsel issues in Minnesota. While a civil right to counsel benefits all Minnesotans who can’t otherwise afford an attorney, Minnesotans of color are disproportionately represented among the state’s citizens living in poverty.  Focusing on individuals’ civil legal problems helps to address this inequity while increasing faith in the justice system.

This program is co-sponsored by the MSBA Access to Justice Committee and the Collaborative Community Law Initiative.


Sally Silk, Hvistendahl, Moersch, Dorsey & Hahn, P.A
