CMLS on COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

CMLS is closely monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) health and safety recommendations. In view of these concerns, and the health and safety of our clients and staff, all CMLS physical office locations are CLOSED as of 3/19/20. CMLS offices expect to reopen on March 31. Courts remain open for certain cases. Please see the MN Judicial Branch for details on what cases are still being heard. UPDATE: A new order was released on 3/20/20, extending court restrictions and limitations until 4/22/20. CMLS will continue to provide advice but brief services and representation will be limited.

CMLS intake will remain open at this time but because our staff are working remotely, the application process may take longer than usual.

NOTE: All CMLS in-person legal clinics are cancelled at this time. 

We expect additional changes to occur, so please check back for additional updates.
