ACC Supports Amendments Allowing Wisconsin’s In-house Lawyers to Provide Pro Bono Services


ACC Position: 

On March 4, 2016, ACC, in coordination with Corporate Pro Bono, as well as 24 general counsel and 44 attorneys in Wisconsin, signed a letter urging the Wisconsin Supreme Court to pass the petition amending Supreme Court Rules Chapter 31 and Chapter 10.03. The amendments would expand opportunities for in-house counsel to provide pro bono legal services, an effort which ACC supported with a previous sign-on letter on September 17, 2014.

On April 13, 2016, the Wisconsin Supreme Court will hold a public hearing to discuss the proposed amendments.
