Examples of the latter: significant service to local bar associations, a state bar, or the Wisconsin Supreme Court's myriad committees, boards, panels, etc. Service to the broader community could include significant activity outside the legal arena that enhances the quality of life in the community. This could include diverse activities that range from serving on community boards, volunteer work with children or others in need, personal time spent on projects to educate or improve conditions in the community etc. In both cases, service that enhances the quality of life for others will be considered in terms of the overall assessment of a person's contributions.
