In a special feature to the July edition of Minnesota Lawyer, Sara G. McGrane, president of the Board of Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid and president of Felhaber Larson, writes compellingly about how the redesigned LawHelpMN.org offers a creative approach to the justice gap in the state.
In her article, Offering access to justice for all, she likens the site, and specifically the new Guide tool, to a GPS style navigation system for legal needs. “The Guide’s logic tree streamlines the data based on the user’s answers, and soft factors gauge which kind of help is the best match.” With the new Guide tool, a LawHelpMN user is able to find a very direct pathway to customized legal information and referrals based on their specific issue and location.
McGrane writes, “I hope my fellow attorneys will venture to the website and familiarize themselves with the guide. It’s an important statewide resource, and it will help us make headway in providing fair and equitable access to the legal system for all Minnesotans.”
