Behind the Scenes: Attorneys and the Republican National Convention
It’s over.  The Republican National Convention has come and (mostly) gone and now it’s time for the reckoning.  Just how many people came to town?  How many chicken sandwiches were consumed?  How many people demonstrated?  The numbers are being sorted, the story is being told, and somehow someone will decide if the event was a success, and by which standards. In the meantime, Bench & Bar would like to highlight one group whose praises are likely to go unsung in other forums: The legion of attorneys without whom this event simply wouldn’t have happened.

Minnesota’s New Domestic Abuse Strangulation Statute
Between 20 and 40 women are murdered each year in Minnesota by a domestic partner, often as they are attempting to leave an abusive relationship.  Lawyers and lay persons alike have strong opinions on when the government should intervene in internal family matters, and the costs of doing or not doing so.
By Kelly Francis
