Online Legal Resources
List of Useful Online Resources
We know it’s hard to keep all the links to different legal resources straight so we’ve gathered them all on this page. Please check it out and bookmark it for future reference. Please note that most of these links will take you to other organizations' websites, including the courts, the Minnesota Legal Services Coalition, ProJusticeMN, and LawHelpMN.
As resources are updated, we’ll post them to this page so check back from time to time! If you’d like something added – please let Martha know (612-752-6676). Thanks!

The following are short video introductions to the vast online resources regarding Minnesota law, especially on issues common to people in poverty. These resources make it possible to provide quality legal advice and brief services on issues with which attorneys may not be otherwise familiar (including security deposits, garnishments, civil forms, etc.). Thanks to Shannon Drake-Buhr for creating them!
· Pat Burns’ webinar regarding Unbundled Legal Services – Professional Responsibility Issues
· A short (25-minute) excerpt regarding practices of best clinics attorneys from a webinar I did on Volunteering at VLN Clinics.
· Working with Pro Bono Clients webinar, which will sometimes be replayed by VLN for elimination of bias credits (but which attorneys can watch on their own at any time).
