MVLC Brown Bag FAQ
The Brown Bag Series of trainings are provided by the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinics and Legal Action of Wisconsin for the volunteer attorneys and students of the MVLC. All of our volunteers are highly encouraged to participate in this and other free CLE's in our year-long Brown Bag Series. They will greatly enhance your ability to serve the clients you see at the MVLC. We also welcome others interested in serving clients with the issues discussed in the series.

Is free parking available for attendees coming from off-campus??
Yes, however you must pre-resister 24 hours in advance to take advantage of this. For those who preregister 24 hours in advance, parking is available on a first come, first served basis in the Eckstein Hall Underground Parking Structure. There are two entrances: 1) 11th Street, between Wisconsin and Clybourn and 2) Clybourn Street - turn west (right) from 11th and enter the first driveway, which looks like a loading dock. We recommend you try the 11th Street entrance first. Enter the lot, pull a ticket, and find an open parking space. Once parked, follow signs to the elevator. Take the elevator to main floor which opens to the foyer and go to the Welcome Desk to get your parking ticket validated so that you will not have to pay for parking when exiting. If the lots are full, please proceed to the Wells Street Structure, Wells Street between 12th and 13th streets (Cost of $5).
If I cannot attend on the date of the presentation, will it be archived on the web?
The presentation will be archived as an audio only podcast on the website. Note that CLE credit cannot be given to those who only listen to the podcast.
Do I need to pre-register?
YES. This is vital so that we can communicate important event details to you and contact any online participants in the case of technical difficulties during the presentation. A registration link is listed near the top of our Brown Bag homepage.
If I attend online, how do I get CLE (attorneys) or Pro Bono (students) credit?
The law school will apply for 1.0 CLE credit for this presentation and students may count the time towards their Pro Bono Society hours. CLE credit can only be given to in-person attendees and online attendees who view the live version of the presentation. To obtain credit, you fill out the Online Attendance Form after the presentation. (Those attending in person will fill out a standard paper attendance sheet).
How do I obtain handouts if I attend online?
Go to the Brown Bag CLE Website and you may print them off before the presentation begins
How do I ask a question if I attend online?
You may ask questions during the presentation by clicking on the icon that looks like a speech bubble. You MUST enter your email in order for us to be able to respond to you.
What should I do if I have technical difficulties during the webcast?
First try refreshing your screen (F5 on most PCs) or try closing your browser window and re-opening it, as this resolves many issues. However, if you have these or any other problems during the presentation, you can email email@example.com during the presentation. If you believed you missed a code due to a technical difficulty, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
