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. See the 2012-13 Schedules.

Mock Trial: “THANK YOU so much for providing this great program to our youth! Through their Mock Trial experience at East, the self esteem and confidence of our students have risen to incredible levels—despite their personal challenges.
