Volunteer Attorney Information

All volunteer attorneys must be licensed, active members of the State Bar of Wisconsin (including Emeritus status) or licensed in-house attorneys, per SCR 10.03(4) (f).  Training is required for all attorneys who volunteer with the MVLC.  We recommend attorneys repeat the training every two years.  The training covers the rules of professional responsibility governing limited scope representation and the policies and procedures of the clinics.  Completion of the training entitles volunteers to professional liability coverage through Marquette University for work with the MVLC.
