Minnesota Society for Criminal Justice

These are among the best criminal lawyers.  The Minnesota Society for Criminal Justice (MSCJ) limits membership to approximately fifty Minnesota defense attorneys.  

A criminal defense lawyers bar association, MSCJ operates as a non-profit College of criminal defense attorneys.  Membership is by invitation, by vote of the existing membership when vacancies come up.

The group meets about once per month in the Twin Cities, to discuss developments in Minnesota criminal law and DWI defense practice.  By sharing information, briefs, arguments, and brain-storming, members both contribute and benefit.

Leading the Way – minnesota society for criminal justice

The Minnesota Society for Criminal Justice also promotes justice also by supporting change in the laws – both legislatively and through litigation in the courts.

An example of supported litigation is the CMI-Minnesota Intoxilyzer machine computer source code litigation in Minnesota Federal Court; as well as the MSCJ Source Code Coalition led by MSCJ but including non-MSCJ-member Minnesota private defense attorneys and Public Defenders.

Since 1985, MSCJ has provided the best annual Continuing Legal Education course DWI and criminal defense.  Originally in Las Vegas with leading Minnesota and national speakers, for the 21st Century we brought it home.  Now in the Twin Cities, the leading edge of criminal law has never been more available to Minnesota defense attorneys.  Don’t miss out.  Usually held in June.  For details see: MSCJ MINNESOTA DWI SEMINAR (CLE).

Though somewhat metro-centric, MSCJ members are among the top criminal defense lawyers in Minnesota.

MSCJ attorneys commit themselves to protecting and advancing the civil rights and constitutional rights of the People, against the government.

This website helps the MSCJ communicate information to the public and other criminal justice professionals. One way we do this is through our MSCJ Blog.

This includes our MSCJ Events category of articles.

It also can help people verify whether a Minnesota criminal lawyer is a current member of MSCJ; and help provide contact information for member defense attorneys, for those seeking to retain one of the best criminal lawyers in Minnesota.  See our Minnesota Defense Lawyer Directory page.
