"As a Gray Plant Mooty summer associate, I had the invaluable opportunity to participate in some of the firm's numerous pro bono projects. Some highlights include (1) assisting with the permanent residency application of a Somali woman and her small child, (2) researching female genital mutilation in Africa for a brief on behalf of a woman seeking asylum from persecution in her home country, (3) interviewing and drafting letters on behalf of individuals overwhelmed by debt in order to gain relief from harassment by creditors, (4) assisting with proposed revisions to the Minnesota Nonprofit Corporation Act, and (5) drafting an overview of Minnesota political lobbying rules for use by a nonprofit organization producing a handbook for lobbyists."
