Working with Cooperatives in Wisconsin 2020

Product ID: CA3045W
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Co-produced with the UW Law & Entrepreneurship Clinic

A long history in the Badger State

The first rural cooperative creameries started popping up in Wisconsin in the 1800s, in response to crashing wheat prices and the state’s agricultural transition from “America’s Breadbasket” to “America’s Dairyland.”1 Today, Wisconsin is home to at least 742 cooperatives across all sectors of the state’s economy.2

As a growing number of lawyers wind down their practices, Wisconsin rural communities face a widening justice gap.3 Providing legal assistance to rural cooperatives presents a promising practice opportunity for new and active attorneys.
