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. 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.
Compete the training in person or online.
- In person training is approved for one Ethics CLE credit. Register for an upcoming session here.
- Online training is available here. However, the online training currently has outdated information about Ghostwriting and will be updated in March 2019. If you watch the online training, please also refer to the Ghostwriting CLE session for the latest information on that topic. After you watch, complete the online training attendance form, which will ensure you are scheduled and covered by the clinics' malpractice insurance. Online training is not eligible for CLE credit.
