Practice Books and Forms

The State Bar publishes comprehensive substantive law books and system books. PINNACLE books are professionally produced legal publications, written by highly respected Wisconsin lawyers and judges.

The books, ranging in length from 8 to 1400 pages, are reviewed for organization and substance by our staff and a an editorial review committee. Most major publications are professionally edited and indexed. Most titles are supplemented regularly.

Our system books can save you hours of time by providing clear explanations of the law, relevant citations, and essential forms for handling procedures covered in the book. In addition, many books include handy checklists, practice tips and sample letters. Forms are available on disk for many of the CLE books.
