Mission Statement

The mission of the State Bar of Wisconsin is to improve the administration of justice and the delivery of legal services and to promote the professional interests of Wisconsin lawyers.

Description

Every day, low-income Wisconsin residents who face complex legal problems are forced to go it alone. For them, the promise of equal justice is unfulfilled. They cannot afford the professional legal help they need, staffed legal aid offices are unable to help and they cannot effectively represent themselves. They fall into what has been called the "justice gap." Wisconsin lawyers can provide the resources and the expert advice that help these clients remain in their homes, escape abusive family situations, resolve legal issues blocking the road to self-sufficiency or obtain the resources that allow them to live with dignity. The mission of the pro bono program at the State Bar of Wisconsin is to support and expand the provision of legal services to the poor and the disadvantaged by volunteer attorneys.
