    The Wisconsin Law Foundation supports programs that provide students with an opportunity to learn about the practice of law (Mock Trial) and develop leadership skills for lawyers (G. Lane Ware Leadership Program). The Law Foundation is working very hard to support these and other programs that will benefit the legal profession and our communities. Your support for the efforts of the Wisconsin Law Foundation is vital to its future success.

    The Law Foundation is asking every member to contribute to the Law Foundation every year. The amount of the contribution will be driven by each member’s personal situation, but we ask you to contribute to show support for the work of the Law Foundation and for the benefit of the profession. The Law Foundation’s board works very hard to ensure the financial success of the foundation and monitors its funding requests very closely to ensure that the programs and services it funds benefit the profession. Please consider contributing to the Wisconsin Law Foundation to support the future of our profession. To donate online, go to
