Get the gold standard for your next appeal

If you plan on appealing a case to either the Wisconsin Court of Appeals or the Wisconsin Supreme Court, this is the standard reference on appellate practice in both. You’ll find Appellate Practice and Procedure in Wisconsin’s 28 chapters provide basic information on appellate procedures, as well as sophisticated commentary on expedited appeals, briefing, oral argument, one-judge appeals, and other important topics.

Several appendices provide additional resources – including:

  • A “Standards of Appellate Review” outline, prepared by the Hon. Richard S. Brown of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, District II
  • Numerous appellate court forms, prepared by the Clerk of the Wisconsin Supreme Court and Court of Appeals
  • The full text of the Wisconsin Rules of Appellate Procedure


With your printed copy of the book, you’ll receive a CD with a complete set of forms available in Microsoft® Word or WordPerfect® format. The Books UnBound® format gives you online access to the forms.

The 2014–2015 supplement:

  • Includes discussions of recent decisions of the Wisconsin Supreme Court and the Wisconsin Court of Appeals that have addressed a range of issues pertinent to civil and criminal appellate practice, such as jurisdictional questions and postconviction matters
  • Adds new case references to the book’s “Standards of Appellate Review” appendix
