Marquette University Law School’s volunteer legal clinic is being recognized by Milwaukee’s archbishop and a civil service agency.
The Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinic offers legal advice and referral services to those unable to access the civil legal system. The clinic is staffed by Marquette law students supervised by licensed attorneys.
Archbishop Jerome Listecki presented a “Treasures of the Church” award to the law school’s Mobile Legal Clinic during a Lenten Luncheon on Tuesday, according to news release.
The United Community Center will also recognize the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinic’s volunteers, staff and board as its UCC Group of the Year for 2015 on Thursday. The legal clinic serves the UCC, which provides services to Hispanics and near south side residents of Milwaukee.Follow @erikastrebel
