Legal Advisory Council

Achieving our vision for our legal department requires strategic advice and assistance of experienced members of Wisconsin’s legal community. It is our goal to build an expanded, sustainable legal staff with expertise in every area of law that has the potential to affect Wisconsin’s natural resources. This includes water and air law; but also mining, energy, solid waste, agricultural and tribal law, to name a few. To that end, we created Clean Wisconsin’s Legal Advisory Council in 2013. This council will advise and assist our legal staff in a variety of ways and includes a rich mix of individuals from Wisconsin and beyond.
