November 17 meeting update

Marquette University law School Eckstein HallCommission members met in Marquette University Law School’s beautiful new Eckstein Hall for their final meeting of 2010. The Commission received updates from its committees on proposed activities and issues that committees have identified as priorities for further work. Commission members also refined a draft statement of shared core values to guide their work on a wide range of systemic issues from legal aid funding and self-help initiatives to public education and civil right to counsel proposals. These core values will serve as Wisconsin’s version of the ABA Principles Of A State System For The Delivery Of Civil Legal Aid (pdf). The Commission’s planning discussion was facilitated by Jim Bamberger from the State of Washington’s Office of Civil Legal Aid. Draft minutes of the meeting will be available here.
