Marquette University Law School in the Community

Two words Marquette Law School takes seriously are "Public Service."

What do we mean in saying that?

Our legal clinics serve low-income people at five locations—the House of Peace, the Milwaukee County Veterans Service Office, the Sojourner Family Peace Center, the United Community Center, and the Milwaukee Justice Center. Plus, we have a Mobile Legal Clinic that goes where people who need service are. And we put on estate- planning clinics in several locations.

4,300 clients are served annually. Of those, 70% live at or below 125% of the federal poverty level.
