Membership in the Fellows of the Wisconsin Law Foundation is considered a professional honor and evidence of professional distinction. The Fellows membership is limited to 2.5% of the State Bar’s total members.
The Fellows organization was created in 1999 as a special means to honor members of the State Bar of Wisconsin who have achieved significant accomplishments in their careers and contributed leadership and service to their communities. In addition to this recognition, the Fellows aims to energize its members to continue their efforts in the promotion of justice, advancement of the profession, and improvement of legal education.
What is Expected of New Fellows Members?
In keeping with the Fellow's purpose of advancing the legal profession, each Fellow, upon acceptance of the invitation to join, pledges $1,500 (paid as a lump sum or as an annual contribution of $150 for a period of ten years.) No mandated payments are required (though gratefully accepted) for a member who has attained the age of seventy-five years. Upon completion of the pledge, a member attains Life Fellow membership which shall continue as long as he or she remains a member in good standing of the State Bar of Wisconsin.
Thank you for your support of the Wisconsin Law Foundation!
