Legal Services State Support

Legal Services State Support is a project of the Minnesota Legal Services Coalition (MLSC), an association of legal services programs in Minnesota that help low-income people with a broad range of civil legal matters. If you have heard of the "legal aid office" in your community, it is probably part of MLSC. MLSC helps create and distribute key information to the public through fact sheets, booklets, and manuals. Legal Services State Support manages this website, ProJusticeMN.org for advocates, and MNLegalAdvice.org, a statewide online legal advice website.
