One of the goals of the Minnesota Judicial Branch is to strengthen public education regarding the role of the courts. As such, the First Judicial District has established a Speakers Bureau to provide judges and court personnel as speakers, at no cost, to schools, civic, business, religious, and other community groups. Speakers will discuss court-related subjects of special interest to the host group and will take questions from the audience or students. All judges are bound by the Code of Judicial Conduct and are unable to address certain matters, such as pending litigation, or to give legal advice.
It is recommended that your request for a speaker be made directly to the First Judicial District Administration Office using the Request Form.
