WSB - Paralegal Certification Program

The State Bar of Wisconsin is once again considering development of a regulatory program for paralegals in Wisconsin.  The proposal presented to the Board of Governors on January 29, 2016 is to consider a voluntary certification program, based on the foundation of the State Bar Task Force report developed in the early 2000's.  

The Board of Governors will next meet in late April to consider making the proposal an action item for the State Bar.
