In the spirit of community service, the Wyoming State Bar implemented an Emeritus Program to encourage experienced attorneys to volunteer their legal skills and experience to help the growing number of Wyoming citizens who cannot afford legal help.
The Emeritus Program is designed to facilitate pro bono services for those lawyers who wish to serve as an unpaid Emeritus Attorney. In many cases, Emeritus Attorneys will simply be providing legal advice and assistance in a variety of civil and family law matters, including preparing petitions and other legal documents.
As an Emeritus Attorney, you will get the benefit of:
No annual license fee
Malpractice insurance contracted through the Wyoming State Bar
- Minimal CLE requirement (7 general credits and 1 ethics credit per calendar year)
Rules Governing the Emeritus Program (see Article I, Section 3(h)
