GRGB’s Joshua L. Gimbel has been appointed Chair of the MBA’s Foundation. The Milwaukee Bar Association Foundation was created on December 7, 1994. The Foundation is organized and operated exclusively to perform and carry out charitable and educational functions and purposes of the Milwaukee Bar Association, including the advancement of jurisprudence and the promotion of the administration of justice in the State of Wisconsin through education and scientific research.
To this end, the current signature project of the Milwaukee Bar Association Foundation is the Milwaukee Justice Center, a collaborative project between the Milwaukee Bar Association, The Milwaukee Bar Foundation, Milwaukee County, and Marquette University Law School. The underlying philosophy of the project is that self-represented litigants have a fundamental right to access the justice system even if they cannot afford an attorney or do not qualify for legal aid.
