Leo Brisbois: Honoring the Less-Traveled Road
The new president of the MSBA is first in several spheres: first MSBA President to graduate from Hamline Law School, first known president of Native American descent, and first Iron Ranger to hold the office. He also offers continuity in his commitment to professional and community service. He’s pictured on the cover in front of Hamline’s Old Main.

Karma, Dogma, Dilemma: Religious Accommodation at Work
