State lawmakers, Supreme Court justices talk student loan debt Tuesday

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - About 20 Wisconsin lawmakers met with all seven State Supreme Court justices Tuesday morning – and the issue of student loan debt arose.

Senate Republican Glenn Grothman of West Bend said the amount of debt that students graduate with is scandalous. And he suggested looking at less expensive ways to get licensed to practice law.

One plus for Wisconsin’s law graduates is that they don’t have to take the State Bar exam in order to get licensed.

Wisconsin is the only state which grants that privilege – and justices spoke highly of the practice, which has been in place since 1870.

Tuesday’s Supreme Court meeting with lawmakers was a traditional function at the beginning of each two-year session.
