Legal Business as Usual | Lawyers Step Up for MN: How Lawyers Can Help Now

Event Description

Legal Business as Usual is our bi-weekly legal news webcast. We log in as early as 7:30 and the 'formal' interview begins at 8 am. We typically wrap between 8:45 and 9 am.

The Judicial Branch, the MSBA and Minnesota Legal Aid recently launched the Lawyers Step Up for Minnesota campaign. Step up in this unprecedented time to help fellow Minnesotans with acute legal needs in housing, family safety and financial security. Even if you’ve never done pro bono before, now is the time. You’ll receive support and mentorship from legal aid programs and, at the end of the one-year campaign, recognition by the Minnesota Supreme Court.
