    • The Evolving Judicial Response to the War on Terrorism
    • Following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, does the United States need to relinquish some civil liberties to remain safe? If so, which liberties and who decides?

    • This report from the Office of Lawyer Regulation looks at the disposition of grievances against lawyers from July 1, 2001 to June 30, 2002, and presents improvements in the system's decision-making and efficiency due to added staff and the new central intake procedure. More matters are now resolved within 90 days and 180 days than under the prior system.

While the Records Management Committee will release forms biannually, with forms listed in the Wisconsin Lawyer, lawyers should periodically check the supreme court and State Bar Web sites for new releases.
