Angela Schultz, assistant dean for public service in Marquette Law School, received the E. Michael McCann Public Service Award at the Milwaukee Bar Association’s 164th annual meeting on Tuesday, June 21.
Schultz’s work focuses on advancing access to justice through the creation, implementation and operational oversight of pro bono projects for law students and lawyers. Schultz is the Law School’s appointee to the Wisconsin Access to Justice Commission, a body created in 2009 by the Wisconsin Supreme Court to aid the courts in improving the administration of justice by supporting civil legal aid.
Schultz works to interact with every Marquette law student to promote the view that law is a helping profession that includes a professional responsibility to engage in pro bono work and other actions that promote equal access to justice.
Prior to her work at Marquette, Schultz practiced elder and disability law with a focus on long-term care and estate planning.
