The Minnesota Justice Foundation (MJF) was incorporated in 1982 by a group of University of Minnesota law students who were concerned about serving their communities. These visionary students believed that lawyers and law students have a special professional obligation to provide quality legal services to those who cannot afford legal representation. In addition, they were committed to improving the law school environment and the legal profession by calling attention to the need for legal services for low-income individuals and for creating pro bono opportunities for law students and lawyers.

MJF strives for justice by creating opportunities for law students to perform public interest and pro bono legal services.

MJF's three programs are the Law School Public Service Program, the Summer Fellowship Program, and Street Law. Our programs are made possible with the support of our donors and community partners. Through these programs, Minnesota Justice Foundation creates opportunities for law students to engage in public interest and pro bono legal services. MJF provides professional experience and training to students while increasing the capacity of legal services organizations that serve the public interest. By strengthening law students’ habits of volunteering, MJF builds a culture of service that students carry forward in their legal careers.
