More Attorneys in Wisconsin? April 27, 2009

I’m following up on my post from last week.   Other bloggers have also commented on the Civil Justice in Wisconsin, A Fact Book publication from UW Law School.

I wanted to direct everyone to a few interesting things in this Fact Book.   Page 31 asks “Is Wisconsin ‘Overlawyered’?”.  The Civil Justice Fact Book states, “Wisconsin, with about 2 percent of the U.S. Population, has about 1.3 percent of the country’s lawyers.”  It goes on to say that Wisconsin’s attorneys are “slightly older” than the national average with “a median of fifty years of ages versus a national median of forty-seven.”

The conclusion is that “Wisconsin seems to have about one-third fewer lawyers per capita than the rest of the country and it is not catching up.”

Interesting stuff.  I though Wisconsin would have more attorneys based upon our diploma privilege.  But, I’m wrong.

Keep an eye out for more comments on the Civil Justice in Wisconsin, A Fact Book.
