The Minnesota Supreme Court's Office of Lawyer Registration maintains a searchable lawyer database and tracks the license status of all Minnesota lawyers. The Office issues annual registration notices, collects demographic and other data about lawyers, receives registration fees from lawyers, issues lawyers' license cards, and issues certificates of good standing.

Effective March 23, 2020, the Lawyer Registration Office is closed to the public in response to the Court Order filed March 20, 2020. As part of the Minnesota Judicial Branch, we remain operational. For additional information, click here.
