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.
To receive one ethics CLE credit for training, complete the training in-person or view a live version of the presentation online. Please note that to receive CLE credit for online live viewing, attendees must submit both parts of the attendance code accurately and in full within 30 minutes of the presentation conclusion. Due to the number of attendees at these trainings, we cannot make exceptions to this policy.
  • Upcoming training dates: fall training training dates will be announced soon.

To join the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinics before the next training session, watch the most recently recorded training. Recorded training sessions are not eligible for CLE credit:
