MDLA Annual Sponsorship and Marketing Opportunities

What is the MDLA?

The Minnesota Defense Lawyers Association (MDLA) is dedicated to serving the needs of lawyers engaged primarily in defense and trial of civil disputes. For the past 50 years MDLA has provided information sharing, networking and mentoring opportunities, quality educational seminars and publications, and developed law improvement initiatives at the capitol. The strong and rich history of the MDLA speaks to its reputation of fulfilling its purpose and reflects its continued relevance as a growing association.

Why become an advertiser or sponsor of the MDLA?

  • Establish your company with the targeted market of Minnesota’s defense lawyer community.
  • Develop and reinforce relationships with decision-makers at Minnesota’s leading defense firms.
  • Support initiatives that strengthen Minnesota’s legal community.

MDLA in print

Advertise in Minnesota Defense, a quarterly magazine featuring substantive law articles written by MDLA members, industry news, event highlights and photos, and notices of upcoming activities. The Minnesota Defense magazine is distributed to more than 1000 readers and is often retained and referenced several times by members and nonmembers because of the high relevance of its content. This is a great way to get your company’s information into the hands of every MDLA member and key decision-makers in the legal community.

MDLA online

The MDLA website is the most utilized resource for MDLA members. Whether updating their member record or registering for an event, the MDLA website is the go-to place for defense lawyers to connect with the association. Advertising opportunities exist in targeted areas of the website as well as on the homepage itself.
