Licensing Paralegals submissions and conference schedule

On February 13, 2004, the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Wisconsin filed a petition for the establishment of a system for licensure and regulation of paralegals in Wisconsin. A public hearing was conducted by the court on October 27, 2004, at which numerous persons appeared. At the ensuing open administrative conference, the court took the matter under advisement pending its determination of certain issues, including ramifications for the unauthorized practice of law, the court’s authority to regulate non-lawyers and other matters.

In a January 4, 2008 order the Wisconsin Supreme Court set this schedule.
