Integrating Pro Bono: Bringing regular legal access to Jeremiah Program moms

As part of national Pro Bono Week 2013 (October 20-26), the Minnesota State Bar Association sponsored a morning continuing legal education program, “Integrating Pro Bono,” featuring Jeremiah Program’s collaboration with Call for Justice, the law firm of Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi, the law firm of Lindquist & Vennum, and Volunteer Lawyers Network.  This unique collaboration brings regular legal access to Jeremiah Program moms on such issues as child custody, child support, wills, health care directives, expungements, and any other legal matter that are barriers to success.
