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. Thomas Hruz of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, District IIII
  • 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


Both the print and Books UnBound versions include a complete set of fillable, unannotated forms via download.

Newly revised

The 2018-2019 supplement includes a number of changes such as:

  • Legislative amendments to the rules of appellate procedure in termination-of-parental-rights cases, adding new signature requirements, among other changes
  • A 2018 Wisconsin Supreme Court decision that ended the previously longstanding practice of giving deference to administrative agencies’ conclusions of law
  • The Wisconsin Legislature’s addition of class-action certifications and decertifications to the list of exceptions to the rule that only final orders and judgments are appealable as of right to the Wisconsin Court of Appeals
  • A new legislatively created requirement that, in limited-scope-representation cases, litigants who are otherwise self-represented must identify attorneys (by their names and State Bar numbers) in court documents prepared with the assistance of an attorney

The supplement also updates the book’s appendices, adding references to recent appellate opinions discussing standards of review and incorporating recently amended text of the Wisconsin Rules of Appellate Procedure.
