About the Attractive Nuisance Tour

The 2016 Attractive Nuisance Tour was a great success! Thank you to our sponsors, bands, guests, and our co-host the Minnesota Music Coalition. We look forward to seeing you all again in 2017!

On Friday, May 13, MJF hosted its annual Attractive Nuisance Tour, a benefit concert to help local organizations provide legal services to the disadvantaged. Each band will have at least one lawyer in it. Since 2003, the Attractive Nuisance Tour has raised money for Minnesota legal nonprofits the only way they know how—through maximum rock ‘n roll!

ANT was held at the Crooked Pint Ale House in Minneapolis.

The bands were:

Proceeds from ANT 2016 will benefit the Minnesota Justice Foundation (MJF).

The money raised by ANT supports MJF’s summer clerkship program. Each summer, MJF sponsors and funds law student summer clerkships at legal aid offices and public interest organizations in Minnesota. MJF clerks provide their placement agency (often struggling with limited resources) with intensive help with casework, research and legal writing. Clerks work at the direction and under the supervision of the agencies’ own lawyers, thereby gaining practical experience. Each clerk works a minimum of 400 hours over the summer.

MJF clerkships are open to students enrolled at all of Minnesota’s three law schools.

Since its beginning in 1983, over 583 MJF-funded summer clerks have provided over 250,000 hours of service to the low-income and public sector communities.

Attractive Nuisance:

[A] person who has an instrumentality, agency, or condition upon his own premises, or who creates such a condition on the premises of another, or in a public place, which may reasonably be apprehended to be a source of danger to children, is under a duty to take such precautions as a reasonably prudent man would take to prevent injury to children of tender years whom he knows to be accustomed to resort there, or who may, by reason of something there which may be expected to attract them, come there to play. (Black’s Law Dictionary, 3d ed.)
