Minnesota State Bar Association

The Minnesota State Bar Association provides valued resources to its members and strives to improve the law and the equal administration of justice for all.

A lot has changed since its establishment in 1883, but today an essential part of the MSBA’s mission remains as it was in the beginning. The MSBA is where Minnesota lawyers connect – to teach, to learn, to confront challenges and navigate changing times together. Through their collective voices and experiences, MSBA members continue to advocate for the legal profession at the courts and the legislature.

Licensed attorneys, in Minnesota or elsewhere, can become members of the MSBA. Law students, paralegals, and law management associates are also welcome.

Minnesota State Board of CLE

The Minnesota State Board of Continuing Legal Education has general supervisory authority over the administration of the Supreme Court Rules for Continuing Legal Education of Members of the Bar. The Board accredits courses and programs that satisfy the educational requirements of the Rules and discovers and encourages the offering of such courses and programs. The Board is subject to the direction and supervision of the Minnesota Supreme Court.

Minnesota CLE and other organizations creating continuing legal education programs must apply to the State Board for credit, and Minnesota attorneys must report their credits to the State Board every three years.

Any questions relating to your attorney license requirements should be directed to the Minnesota State Board of Continuing Legal Education at 651-297-7100 or by email.
