    Waukesha attorney re-elected to State Bar Board of Governors

    MADISON, April 25, 2003 - Attorney James L. Dunlap has been re-elected to a two-year term on the State Bar of Wisconsin Board of Governors, the body responsible for managing and directing the affairs and activities of the statewide association. He will join another local lawyer, Atty. John Macy, on the Board.

    As created by Supreme Court Rule, the State Bar is governed by a 48-member Board of Governors consisting of six officers, 34 members elected by State Bar members from the association's 16 districts, five elected by divisions of the State Bar, and three non-lawyers appointed by the Supreme Court. As policy makers, the Board of Governors and officers influence the future of the legal profession and the delivery of legal services in Wisconsin.

    Dunlap, of Congdon, Walden, Schuster & Vaklyes, S.C., graduated from William Mitchell College of Law (St. Paul, MN) in 1985. The former president of the Waukesha County Bar Association, he is a current member of the Board of Governors and serves as the liaison to the Bar's Labor and Employment Law Section. Dunlap is involved with the Waukesha Area Chamber of Commerce and has participated on numerous boards during the last decade: Catholic Charities Board (1989-1995), St. John Neumann Parish Council (1996-1999), Mukwonago Rotary Board (1998-1999) and Phantom Lake YMCA Board (1998-1999).

    The State Bar of Wisconsin is the mandatory professional association, created by the Wisconsin Supreme Court, for attorneys who hold a law license in Wisconsin. With more than 20,000 members, the State Bar aids the courts in improving the administration of justice, provides continuing legal education for its members, and assists Wisconsin lawyers in carrying out initiatives to educate the public about the legal system.
