The Board of Governors has a full agenda for its meeting Friday. A 52-member body elected by the state’s lawyers, the board oversees the Wisconsin State Bar’s policies and operations. Its meeting scheduled for Friday starts at 10 a.m. at the Wisconsin State Bar Center, 5302 Eastpark Blvd., Madison.
For years, Wanda Witter has lived on the streets in Washington, D.C., trying to persuade officials that Social Security owes her more than $100,000. For years, the 80-year-old woman says people dismissed her as crazy.
The Wisconsin State Bar will begin rolling out a system allowing paralegals to get voluntary certifications.
The State Bar's Board of Governors on Wednesday approved a proposal to establish and administer a statewide paralegal-certification system.
Paralegals would be able to obtain official state certifications under a proposal the State Bar plans to consider Friday.
More than 20 years ago, the Paralegal Association of Wisconsin started looking into voluntary certification for paralegals.
It cannot be emphasized too often that disaster and recovery planning is about people. Staff concerns are especially crucial. Valuable staff members are important during normal times and indispensable in dealing with a calamity.
Law firms that grant paralegals performance-based bonuses tied to the amount of money the firm wins for its client could be in violation of Wisconsin’s ethical rules for attorneys.
It is well demonstrated that paralegals improve a firm's bottom line.
More than a dozen State Bar of Wisconsin members are seeking permission from the state’s highest court to earn Continuing Legal Education credit for teaching a legal specialty course in a paralegal program.
Paralegal positions, while less lucrative than starting associate jobs, are becoming an attractive option for unemployed lawyers looking for work.
