Applicants for admission to the Wisconsin Bar can download application forms from the World Wide Web and can complete them on-line. However, for lack of a system for electronic signatures and payment, applicants must then print their applications and submit them to the board on paper. A web-based system will be more convenient both for applicants and the board. The board, therefore, asks the Court to adopt the proposed amendments to SCR 40.01 and 40.14, and to direct the CCAP and the Court’s fiscal officer to assist in implementing this Electronic Application System as soon as conveniently possible.
