Court with Class provides high school teachers with the opportunity to include a Wisconsin Supreme Court visit as part of their classroom activities.
Through this program, high school classes:
- See the Wisconsin Supreme Court
- Observe oral arguments before the court
- Meet one of the justices for a Q&A session
Prior to the visit, teachers are provided with a synopsis of the case. Following the oral argument, students have the opportunity to meet with one of the justices to discuss general legal issues. Many teachers choose to expand this visit, by including a meeting with their local legislators and a tour of the Wisconsin State Capitol.
The State Bar's Public Education Department sponsors Court with Class in cooperation with the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
SPACE FOR THIS PROGRAM IS EXTREMELY LIMITED. PLEASE REGISTER EARLY.

Judicial Teaching Institute: "Due to time constraints, the Wisconsin judicial system gets slighted. I now have a thorough understanding of the Wisconsin Supreme Court and I will definitely place more emphasis on it." - Nathan Vance, Oak Creek High School
