Angela Schultz is the pro bono director for the law school. Her charge is to advance pro bono in the legal profession, particularly within the student body. Prior to her work at the law school, Angela practiced elder and disability law and was the assistant director of a domestic violence intervention program in Portland, Oregon. She earned her J.D. as an evening student at Lewis & Clark Law School and her B.A. at Knox College.
Her work with a range of people, all in need of access to justice, lead naturally to her work as a liaison between Marquette law students and pro bono projects such as the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinic, the Milwaukee Justice Center, the Domestic Violence Injunction Hearings project, and the Guardianship Clinic, to name a few. The time she spends with the remarkably committed students of Marquette University Law School who will go on to join the legal profession with a deep understanding of the great difference pro bono makes is the best part of her job.
