Minnesota Chapter

Message from the President

By Judge Susan Richard Nelson

Let me begin by extending a very warm welcome to those of you who have been active and devoted members of our chapter of the Federal Bar Association in the past and to those of you who have just joined this remarkable organization. I am quite eager to share with you my excitement about the coming year. I also want to recognize the extraordinary accomplishments of this chapter over the past year.

Before I do so, I want to reflect for a moment about our greater mission.

District Court of Minnesota Website

The official court Web site for the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota provides helpful information for the federal practitioner, including the full text of the Local Rules, ECF information, courtroom technology and general contact information, among other features.

Judges’ Practice Pointers and Preferences

The Minnesota Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, with the generous assistance of the district's judges, has compiled a set of "Practice Pointers and Preferences" for federal court practitioners. Judges participating in this project have submitted a list of practice pointers and preferences regarding, for instance, motion practice, written submissions to chambers, scheduling hearings, trial practice, and the like. This information is not intended to constitute a new "local rule" or "standing order" for each judge, but merely a helpful resource for members of the bar. You may access the judges' Practice Pointers and Preferences directly from the U.S. District Court website at the following link: http://www.mnd.uscourts.gov/practice-pointers-new.shtml.
