May 6, 2009 – State Bar CLE Books has released the 10th edition of A Guide to Wisconsin Statutes of Limitation and Other Time Limits, a popular and vital publication for Wisconsin lawyers – and for anyone who deals with the courts or with any governmental agency in this state.
This book, prepared with considerable support from the Wisconsin Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company (WLMIC), identifies and organizes statutory time limits, and sets out the requirements for each. The guide simplifies wordy and confusing time-limit statutes by listing them in a four-column table covering:
- the statute number,
- the action, event, or proceeding,
- the time limit, and
- the event triggering the time limit.
This innovative format isolates all the time limits from a particular chapter of the statutes, allowing the reader to see every limit that may apply to a particular case or proceeding. All of which makes it a necessary companion to the Wisconsin Statutes.
The guide’s extensive index makes it simple to find all applicable time limits in any particular subject area. The guide also provides a textual explanation of how to compute time under each statute, as well as a current compilation of chapter 893 of the Wisconsin Statutes – the general, but not only, time limitations chapter.
As many as one of every five malpractice claims arise from missed deadlines and other calendaring errors. Don’t become one of those statistics. Update your library today. A Guide to Wisconsin Statutes of Limitation and Other Time Limits is available for $70.
