The Minnesota Supreme Court Announces a Vacancy on the Legal Services Advisory Committee (LSAC)

Posted: Wednesday, May 1, 2019

The Minnesota Supreme Court is seeking to fill one position with the Legal Services Advisory Committee.  The opening is for a client eligible representative who would be appointed to a three-year term beginning July 1, 2019. 
 
The Legal Services Advisory Committee (LSAC) receives funds from the legislature, Interest on Lawyer Trust Accounts (IOLTA) revenue, and attorney license fees to support civil legal services programs serving low-income 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 at least 6 times per year.  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, via e-mail at mjcappellateclerkofcourt@courts.state.mn.us or via U. S. Mail at 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 Tuesday, May 28, 2019.  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.
