The Minnesota Supreme Court Announces Attorney Member Vacancies on the Legal Services Advisory Committee (LSAC)

Posted: Friday, April 27, 2018

The Minnesota Supreme Court is seeking to fill two positions with the Legal Services Advisory Committee.  Both openings are for attorney representatives.  Members would be appointed to three-year terms beginning July 1, 2018. 
 
The Legal Services Advisory Committee (LSAC) has two primary purposes: making grant awards and providing statewide planning to support the civil legal services system.  LSAC receives funds from the legislature, Interest on Lawyer Trust Accounts (IOLTA) revenue, and attorney license fees to support grants to civil legal services programs serving low-come clients.  The committee reviews grant applications every two years and decides how to award money to eligible programs.  In the non-grant years, LSAC works on policies and priority setting related to improvements to the delivery of civil legal services across Minnesota.  The committee is comprised of 7 lawyers, 2 public non-lawyer members, and 2 client eligible members.  The committee meets 4-6 times per year with increased time commitments during the grant cycle.  Meeting expenses can be reimbursed.  More information about the committee is available at www.mncourts.gov/lsac and there is a contact form on that website to ask any questions.
 
To be considered for these openings, submit a letter of interest to AnnMarie S. O’Neill, Clerk of the Appellate Courts, 305 Judicial Center, 25 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., St. Paul, MN 55155, so as to be received by 4:30 pm on Wednesday, May 30, 2018.  In your letter, please include a description of your interest in the legal needs of low-income Minnesotans or highlight your experience with legal services.
