Rely on decades of courtroom experience


Develop your criminal law or traffic law case with the same resource judges use to evaluate it — the Wisconsin Judicial Benchbook Volume I: Criminal and Traffic. The Benchbook takes the same information that judges use to conduct trials and puts that expertise into your hands. Intended to be a practical, everyday working tool for judging cases fairly, correctly, and efficiently, the Criminal and Traffic Benchbook is both a comprehensive guide and a distillation of the law, and integrates the experiences, practices, and thoughts of many outstanding Wisconsin judges.

Know where your case is going and why


You’ll know what to do next thanks to the Criminal and Traffic Benchbook’s easy-to-follow outline format that guides you through the main stages of the criminal law process and traffic proceedings. You’ll find your procedural questions answered efficiently and effectively.

Support your position


For each step in a case, you’ll have the most relevant statutory citations and case law references in the left margin of each page, next to the corresponding discussion in the chapter outline. This guide to the law provides you with the background and knowledge to confidently represent your clients.
