In August, Bench & Bar ran a two-page infographic entitled “State of Access to Justice in Minnesota.” The spread summarizing statewide ATJ data generated a lot of buzz on social media, prompting retweets and reposts from organizations around the U.S. as well as in Minnesota.

Some of the local reaction:

Ellen Krug, Executive Director of Call for Justice, LLC: “The MSBA Infographic rocks! Humans love pictures, big numbers and boxes with data! Call for Justice, LLC uses the infographic to explain the legal system to non-lawyers and as a way of making complex information simpler. We’re grateful that the MSBA created such a useful and imaginative tool that can be used in a variety of contexts.”

Mary Kaczorek, Supervising Attorney at Minnesota Legal Services State Support: “Legal Services State Support manages, Minnesota’s website supporting pro bono attorneys and legal services attorneys. State Support has used the MSBA’s Access to Justice infographic on the homepage to help highlight the high need for pro bono attorneys in Minnesota.”
