Following is an excerpt:

The bus, which is being called the first of its kind in Wisconsin, is a partnership between the Milwaukee Bar Association and Marquette Law School. Law students are partnered with pro bono attorneys and provide free, confidential legal advice to citizens.

“We keep thinking of different ways to bring justice to the people. This is going to be a great way to do it,” said program organizer Mike Gonring.

“Poverty has moved to the north-west of this city. We have a great justice center downtown, but it’s difficult for people out here to get down to the courthouse,” explained Gonring. “We take an oath to say we’ll never turn down work because of the person’s lack of money.”
