    This is the first of a series of articles on Wisconsin legal history that will appear in the Wisconsin Lawyer through 2003 to commemorate significant anniversaries of the Wisconsin Supreme Court (150 years), the State Bar of Wisconsin (125 years), and the Court of Appeals (25 years).


    Celebrate Wisconsin's Legal History

    In 2003, the Wisconsin Supreme Court, State Bar, and Court of Appeals will all mark milestones.

    An earlier series of articles, published from 1992 to 1997, focused on the evolution of various fields of law in Wisconsin from statehood to the present and on the law's role during several crucial periods of Wisconsin history. The earlier articles are available on the State Bar's public Web site, Legal Explorer.

    The new series will present biographies of prominent Wisconsin Supreme Court justices. The series is part of the work of the Wisconsin Legal History Committee, which was appointed by Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson to commemorate the legal entities' anniversaries in 2003 and to encourage the study of Wisconsin legal history generally.
