The State Bar of Wisconsin ensures that Wisconsin attorneys meet and maintain the highest standards of competency, technical skill and ethical conduct. The State Bar of Wisconsin is governed by a 52-member Board of Governors, which is primarily made up of attorneys elected by the members.
The State Bar of Wisconsin is a professional association that provides educational, career development and other services to its 24,000 members. It also provides public services, including attorney referrals, public education and reduced-fee legal assistance for low-income state residents.
The State Bar of Wisconsin takes legislative positions on general policy items of importance to the legal profession. The Government Relations team lobbies on behalf of the State Bar and some of its practice sections, in an effort to improve the administration of justice and the delivery of legal services in Wisconsin.
