Educating the Public


The State Bar of Wisconsin sponsors a variety of public education programs for students, teachers and adults.

Students have the incredible opportunity to observe oral arguments and speak with a Wisconsin Supreme Court justice afterward. High school students also have the opportunity to be on a mock trial team, and present their case before real judges and attorneys. Teachers can develop mock trial teams and act as coaches.

In Our Courts Wisconsin, judge/lawyer teams use videos and other tools to help adult audiences better understand the courts and the legal system.

The Public Education Department is also happy to assist interested teachers in finding an attorney to come to their classroom and speak on a variety of legal topics.

  • Judicial Teaching Institute: “The greatest part of the institute was learning more about the municipal courts. This is the most used court by citizens but the court that the least is known about. Thank you for the resources I can use in my classroom!” - Tom Noonan, Marquette University High School
