Minnesota Bar Gets High Marks For Its Relief Efforts
It is difficult to gauge the full extent of the gratitude that the Louisiana bar feels for its colleagues in Minnesota.
Louisiana State Bar Association President-Elect Marta-Ann Schnabel said, "I think Minnesota gave us the most of any state. And it wasn't just the money. Minnesota has gone out of its way. It is the only bar association that has contacted us to send representatives here to see and experience the extent of the devastation."
An MSBA contingent, led by the group's president, Susan Holden, met with organizations across the Gulf Coast to educate themselves on the problems they face in serving the legal needs of lower-income people affected by hurricane Katrina.
