Access to Justice Commission Formed: New WI Supreme Court Rule 14

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has created Chapter 14 of the Supreme Court Rules, establishing the Access to Justice Commission.

The Wisconsin Lawyer has a copy of the full order. From the Creation and Purpose section (SCR 14.02):

(1) In order to aid the courts in improving the administration of justice by supporting civil legal services to those who cannot afford them, the State bar shall create an Access to Justice Commission.
(2) The mission of the Commission is to develop and encourage means of expanding access to the civil justice system for unrepresented low income Wisconsin residents.

An earlier article from the State Bar has more information about the Commission.

Thanks to my colleague, Jenny Zook for sharing this with me.
