Who they are:

The Academy is comprised of the leading trial lawyers in the State of Minnesota who have attained the knowledge and experience to become certified trial lawyers. This certification process requires that an applicant for certification accomplish the following:

  1. Pass a day long written examination on the subjects of evidence admissibility, civil procedure, ethics, and other trial related subjects;
  2. Continue with annual continuing education course work focused on trial and substantive law skills;
  3. Prove their talent at written advocacy via submission of authored Court briefs as part of the review process;
  4. Receive favorable recommendations from other trial lawyers and trial Court Judges;
  5. Demonstrate the absence of professional ethics violations; and
  6. Show that they have the requisite number of trials and trial related preparation efforts to be considered for board certification.

Membership in the Academy signifies the member’s commitment to excellence, civility, and professionalism. As a member of the Academy, each member proudly exemplifies the commitment to these ideals.

I am proud to be a member. The group is made up of lawyers who practice civil law on both sides and represent a diverse group of clients. It is the lawyers who see judges day in and day out.

They are the type of people you should ask about each of these elections.
