The Public Interest Law Section provides a forum for public interest lawyers statewide to discuss and promote public interest issues and concerns. Members are involved in issues affecting low-income and underrepresented persons; government benefits; consumer protection; housing; disability rights; elder law; access to health care; constitutional/civil rights; environmental justice; fair employment/labor; women’s rights; violence against women, and reproductive health care. The section monitors and proposes legislation, sponsors CLE programs, works closely with law students, and has a listserv.
The State Bar of Wisconsin offers its members the opportunity to network with other lawyers who share a common interest through its 24 sections. Learn more at http://www.wisbar.org/groups.
