Volunteer Lawyer Project


Volunteer Today! To become a volunteer for Legal Action of Wisconsin, complete the registration form here.

Go to the State Bar’s Pro Bono Portal for a listing of new volunteer opportunities.

You can make a difference.  Here is what clients have said after pro bono representation:

“I am infinitely grateful for the help I’ve received today.  I was very fearful of an eviction.  Your attorney helped me immensely, thank you so very much!” – A recent Eviction Defense Project client

“Thank you so much.  I cannot thank you and your department enough.  These decisions are definitely life changing so I will forever be in your debt.  I was fully licensed yesterday as a substance abuse counselor.  Thank you for opening up so many opportunities.” – An MATC student who received two pardons, arrest cycle removed from her background check, and CCAP case correction.

Volunteer Benefits:  

  • Annual CLE training including professional-responsibilities training (FREE)
  • Courtroom experience and client contact
  • Malpractice insurance
  • Projects and support to fulfill their pro bono obligations
