Public

Government Relations

The MSBA is the collective, persuasive voice of the legal profession at the Capitol. Our year-round government relations staff joins with contract in-session lobbyists to vigorously advocate on behalf of our member attorneys and legal professionals.

In every budget cycle we give 
clear voice to the support of funding the justice system, working to ensure adequate funding for the courts, public defenders, and civil legal services. We also provide technical assistance to legislators and spearhead issues that are of interest or concern to the profession. 

For Members

The MSBA promotes an active legislative agenda. MSBA committees and sections often develop legislative proposals that are specific to a practice area.  

The Legislative Committee considers the proposals and makes recommendations to the Council and Assembly. 

The Capitol Connection provides timely updates to members during the Minnesota Legislative Session.
