North Star Lawyer Certification Open

Did you complete 50 hours or more of pro bono work in 2021? Would you like to be recognized for your work and show your commitment to pro bono in our communities? If so, the MSBA’s North Star Lawyer program is open for certification.

The North Star Lawyer program celebrates members who provide 50 hours or more of legal services as defined in Rule 6.1(a), (b)(1) and (b)(2) of the Rules of Professional Conduct. Beyond that, we celebrate the impact those hours represent and the improved access to justice that our members strive to provide. 2021 was another exceptional year for legal needs in our state, and we are proud of the work our membership has done pro bono.

MSBA members can visit www.mnbar.org/northstar to certify that they met the aspirational goal of providing 50 hours of pro bono service in 2021. Members who report their voluntary service will be recognized as North Star Lawyers and included on the annual roster insert published in the May/June issue of Bench & Bar as well as through other bar recognition opportunities.
