The Minnesota Justice Foundation (MJF) is a membership-run, nonprofit organization. Its mission is to promote social justice and to improve legal services to those who have been under-represented by the legal profession. Through MJF, students have the opportunity to work with lawyers in a variety of legal advice settings or to complete research projects for lawyers who have taken cases on a pro-bono basis.
In addition, MJF sponsors several summer clerkships per year, in settings which provide legal services to indigent clients. Through these experiences, law students and lawyers will develop an awareness of their ethical obligation to undertake public interest legal representation in the future. (Elections for officer positions in the organization are held in the fall.)
