2020 Readership Survey

We want to hear from you. We hope you can find a few minutes today to take our readership survey and let us know about your preferences and opinions of the Minnesota State Bar Association’s signature publication—Bench & Bar of Minnesota.  

To help ensure that MSBA provides the type of content that supports you and your work, we want to know more about how you read the publication (in print and online) and the types of content you value. 

The survey should take about 5 minutes of your time. Thanks for your assistance.  Begin Survey

Pro Bono Week

The MSBA celebrates Pro Bono Week (October 25-31) with a series of free CLE programs to learn from our Pro Bono All-Stars, connect with available volunteer opportunities, learn about best practices for providing remote service, and help you to take concrete action toward addressing racial disparities in our legal system. CLE credit will be available for each program. For details and registration, please visit www.projusticemn.org/probonoweek.

MSBA Pro Bono All Stars

In 2012, the Minnesota State Bar Association created the North Star Lawyers program to recognize members who provided 50 or more hours of pro bono service (the standard in Rule 6.1) in a given calendar year. In conjunction with Pro Bono Week 2020, we acknowledge our long-term North Star Lawyers with a new designation —Pro Bono All-Stars—for members who have participated for seven or more years. Thank you for your consistent service to our community and for helping to make justice more available to low-income Minnesotans. For more information on North Star Lawyers or volunteering for pro bono service, please contact Steve Marchese, MSBA Public Service Director, at smarchese@mnbars.org or 612-278-6308.
