Speaking of passing the bar...

"Wisconsin now has the most permissive standards for admitting out-of-state attorneys to the bar in the United States."
 
I must say, as a prospective attorney who may take the bar elsewhere first, it's nice to know it won't be too difficult to go home if I want to at some point.
 
Under the new rule, an attorney can be admitted to practice if he has been substantially engaged in the active practice of law in any state for three years within the last five years prior to applying for admission.
