MN Justice Foundation Honors Faegre & Benson Professional

On November 10, the Minnesota Justice Foundation honored Faegre & Benson's Pro Bono Program Manager, Jodie Boderman, with the 2010 Outstanding Service Advocate Award.  The Award recognizes Boderman's dedication to ensuring access to justice for low-income and disadvantaged persons, and her long record of leadership in the development of community and court-based legal clinics throughout the Twin Cities.

Boderman has served as the firm's pro bono program manager since 1994.  She has been critical to the development of a broad-based pro bono practice that prioritizes service to low-income and disadvantaged clients.  She herself serves hundreds of low-income clients annually. 

Boderman's notable projects include creation of the legal clinic at the Minnesota Indian Women's Resource Center in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis, co-founding the  Hennepin County Legal Access Point Clinic, Conciliation Court Clinic, and Housing Court Clinic.  She also developed and co-directs the Legal Section at Project Homeless Connect events.

MJF serves Minnesota's low-income and disadvantaged communities through numerous programs that pair volunteer law students with pro bono and public interest attorneys.  Faegre & Benson works closely with MJF law students at community legal clinics, and is an annual sponsor of the MJF Summer Clerkship Program.
