Angela F. Schultz is Marquette Law School's assistant dean for public service. Her charge is to advance access to justice through the creation, implementation, and operational oversight of pro bono projects for law students and lawyers. Angela is Marquette Law School’s appointee to the Wisconsin Access to Justice Commission, a body created in 2009 by the Wisconsin Supreme Court to aid the courts in improving the administration of justice by supporting civil legal aid. Angela works to interact with every Marquette law student to promote the view that ours is a helping profession that includes a professional responsibility to engage in pro bono work and other actions that promote equal access to justice.

Prior to her work at Marquette, Angela practiced elder and disability law with a focus on long term care and estate planning. Angela went to law school to “change the world” after spending more than ten years working at a domestic violence intervention program in Portland, Oregon. Her years of work with survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault led her to law school in pursuit of additional advocacy tools to promote healthy communities and justice for all. As a regular supervisor at the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinics, Angela still relies on skills she learned while working the midnight shift at a homeless shelter where anything could happen and creative problem-solving was key to success. Angela earned her J.D. at Lewis & Clark Law School and has a B.A. in anthropology and Spanish from Knox College.
