St. Louis County Attorney Kimberly Maki swore in Liselotte Schluender and Nathan LaCoursiere today during a ceremony held at the St. Louis County Courthouse in Duluth.
Schluender graduated from William Mitchell College of Law, now Mitchell Hamline, and brings 10 years of experience in family, consumer, and poverty law. She was hired to fill the vacant position after Judge Amy Lukasavitz was appointed by Governor Tim Walz to the 6th Judicial District Bench. Schluender will work in the Public Health & Human Services Division in Duluth and handle a child protection caseload.
LaCoursiere graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School and brings 14 years of experience in civil litigation and public law. He was hired to replace Nick Campanario, who was promoted to Civil Division Head in Duluth. LaCoursiere will work in the Civil Division in Duluth and will represent the county in a portion of its civil litigation and advise the Land and Minerals Department.
“We are thrilled to have Lilo and Nate join our team,” said Maki. “Both are dedicated public servants and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to their positions. They will serve the citizens of St. Louis County extraordinarily well.”
