Mission & Core Values

Our Mission

The Minnesota Justice Foundation creates opportunities for law students to engage in public interest and pro bono legal service and increases the capacity of legal organizations that serve the public interest.

Our Core Values

Access to Justice
We recognize that many people in our communities are unable to access legal services. We believe that it is a privilege to be trained in the law and that it is the duty of law students and lawyers to exercise this
privilege to increase access to justice for all.

Community Connection
We recognize that MJF plays a unique and vital role connecting legal service providers, advocates, law students, and attorneys. We listen and respond to the needs of our partners and law students as we work together to close the justice gap.
