The MSBA Elder Law Section has allocated funds to offer up to four (4) scholarships to attend the 2017 Elder Law Institute. The institute occurs on October 12 and 13, 2017, at the Minnesota CLE Conference Center in Minneapolis. Each scholarship covers the complete cost of tuition. (Recipients will need to cover any other expenses that they may incur.)
To qualify, 1) you must practice at least partly in elder law, 2) you must be practicing law within a solo, small firm, legal aid, or public interest law practice in either a paid or unpaid capacity, and 3) you must either reside over 150 miles from the Twin Cities -or- have started your practice in elder law within the last three (3) years. Unemployed and underemployed attorneys are particularly encouraged to apply. Applications are available on the Elder Law Section's website.
Interested applicants must apply by midnight on Friday, September 22, 2017. Scholarship recipients will be notified by Tuesday, September 26, 2017. Scholarship recipients must be MSBA Elder Law Section members by October 12, 2017; however, applicants do not need to be section members in order to apply and be selected. Previous recipients of scholarships from the MSBA Elder Law Section are ineligible.
