Partnerships & Recognition

Pro Bono

Partnerships

Our long-standing commitment to pro bono work includes participation in several programs, including the following:

  • Minnesota Justice Foundation Pro Bono Law Clerk Program, a partnership that allows private firms to help provide valuable legal experience to law students and leverage their internal resources to increase the availability of legal services to the poor and underserved in our community.
  • Minnesota State Bar Association North Star Lawyers Program, an organization which recognizes members who provide 50 hours or more of pro bono legal services per year to those who otherwise could not afford representation.
  • The Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge, a pact formed by the nation's largest law firms to significantly increase the amount of pro bono work being performed by their organizations.
