The Minnesota Justice Foundation (MJF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to engaging law students in pro bono legal service during law school and in their future careers. With offices at all four local law schools, MJF provides law students with opportunities to volunteer with nearly 200 organizations and government agencies. Volunteer opportunities cover every area of law that impacts the low-income community and allow students to build a wide range of real world legal skills and make critical contacts while providing valuable assistance to public interest agencies and low-income clients. MJF also offers paid summer public interest clerkships through both the MJF Summer Clerkship Program and the U of M MJF Student Chapter’s Public Interest Clerkship (PIC) program.
In addition, public interest minded students are encouraged to join the U of M MJF Student Chapter to offer the student body relevant programs and aid clerkship fundraising efforts. For more information about volunteer opportunities and clerkships, please visit www.mnjustice.org or stop by the office in Room 90.
