Legal Business as Usual | Topic: MSBA Access to Justice Committee

Event Description

Legal Business as Usual is our twice a month legal news webcast. We log in as early as 7:30 and the 'formal' interview begins at 8 am. We typically wrap at 8:45.

The MSBA Access to Justice Committee is dedicated to advancing solutions that help all people, and particularly people with lower incomes or limited access to legal assistance, obtain the legal help and resources they need to receive equal justice. This week we are joined by special guest co-host from the Acess to Justice Committee, Roy Ginsburg.

In 2020, the pandemic and racial inequities created new challenges in the civil legal system. We’ll talk about the legal needs of Black, Indigenous and People of Color, small businesses impacted by the uprisings in the Twin Cities after George Floyd died, and people unable to afford a lawyer. Our guests will share how their organizations have responded:

  • Veena Iyer, Exective Director of the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota
  • Kwame Osafo-Addo, Manager of the Entrepreneurs of Color Program at Legal Corps
  • J. Singleton, Program Manager at Legal Services State Support
  • Dori Streit, Executive Director at Legal Aid Service of Northeastern Minnesota

Join us this week to learn about recent updates, ongoing projects, and more from the MSBA Access to Justice Committee.
