A majority of Minnesotans appear in court for important reasons and are unrepresented, but not by choice. This is a fundraiser to help those people.

The Volunteer Attorney Program strives to provide pro bono legal services to the tremendous portion of the population who are forced to navigate the complex and litigious judicial system without an attorney. Ideally, in most civil matters, individuals hire an attorney or qualify for a legal services staff attorney. The reality is that the majority of litigants in Minnesota appear in court unrepresented. This is usually not by choice – these individuals either cannot afford an attorney or do not qualify for legal aid.

This fundraiser is raising money to help pay for some of the costs for individuals that need that help, and can't get it any other way.

Volunteer Attorney Program's annual LawLawPalooza Fundraiser will be on May 3, 2019, at the Clyde Iron Works Malting Building in Duluth. Doors open at 5 pm, dinner starts at 6 pm and the show starts at 7 pm. Don't miss impressive musical performances by local attorneys, judges, and justice partners. The cost for the event is $50.

The fundraiser is also looking for donations.
