Seeking private and in-house attorneys for Pro Bono Council

The MSBA’s Pro Bono Council works collaboratively to advance pro bono engagement within the private bar by developing solutions to ensure that all people, and particularly people with lower incomes or limited access to legal assistance, have the legal help they need.  

Made up of attorneys and pro bono professionals from legal aid, government, and the private bar, the council is committed to a diversity of perspectives—which it deems essential to lasting and effective solutions to growing pro bono in Minnesota. The council is currently seeking several members from the ranks of private practice or in-house counsel, and at least one attorney from greater Minnesota.

The Pro Bono Council meets five times per year via Zoom, with additional meetings for workgroups and events as necessary. Past initiatives include annual Pro Bono Week programming, pro bono recognition efforts, advancing partnerships with legal aid, and statewide pro bono policy advocacy.
