    MADISON, June 6, 2003 - Attorney Rex A. Ewald will serve as chairperson for the State Bar of Wisconsin's General Practice Law section beginning July 1.

He received his undergraduate degree in 1973 from University of Wisconsin-Platteville and his law degree from the UW-Madison Law School in 1978. In addition to his State Bar membership, Ewald is a member of the American Bar Association and Green County Bar Association.
