Have access to the same information that Wisconsin judges use
The five Wisconsin Judicial Benchbook volumes were developed by the Office of Judicial Education to provide judges with a practical, on-the-spot resource for use at trials and hearings. These benchbooks offer the same guidance to attorneys.
Written by committees of experienced judges, the Wisconsin Judicial Benchbook series presents the information that many judges use to guide them through five broad categories of law, including:
Quick access to essential information
You’ll access information in each benchbook quickly and easily. There’s a comprehensive table of contents at the beginning of each book, plus major-subject tabs for primary sections and individual tabs for every chapter.
The chapters then have internal tables of contents to make zeroing in on information quick and intuitive. In addition, the books provide statutory citations and case law references in the left margin of each page, next to the corresponding discussion in the chapter outline.
A great overview
You’ll find a general guide to the main stages of the each type of law in a quick and easy-to-follow outline format. With highlighting of the key steps alongside citations to the most relevant cases and statutes, the benchbooks are handy references — whether you’re just starting out or a veteran of the Wisconsin court system.
Don’t get caught unprepared
With these great resources, you’ll know better what to expect in your case and be able to plan your strategies and decide how to proceed through each process. This will help you accurately inform your clients about what they should expect, what options may be available, and how the court may look at specific facets of their case.
