Membership Committee
The Membership Committee is a critically important committee that promotes membership in the Minnesota Supreme Court Historical Society. It reviews and sets membership dues, and often sets dues policies with a view to encouraging a wide and diverse membership in the Society. Recently, the Membership Committee successfully created an initiative that instituted law firm group memberships to ensure their continuing support of the Society’s activities. Perhaps more importantly the Committee also instituted free initial memberships for minority bar associations,10 free memberships for criminal law practitioners and sponsorship plans for law school faculty. The Committee has also conceived ideas for welcoming new members at special members-only events including interesting CLEs. The Membership Committee is currently considering programs to foster involvement of out-of-state and foreign law students to introduce them to Minnesota legal history and tradition. The Committee also maintains a close working relationship with law students either directly or through their law school Society chapters.

Publications Committee

Website Committee
