Judicial Council Documentation

Per their website, “the Judicial Council is a 21-member body whose principal statutory responsibilities are to study and make recommendations relating to: (1) court pleading, practice and procedure; and (2) organization, jurisdiction and methods of administration and operation of Wisconsin courts.”

Litigators are often interested in documentation produced by the Council. Items include minutes, committee records, correspondence, and reports. Review of these documents may provide insight into particular rules. The Wisconsin State Law Library houses this special collection. The WSLL librarians have created a committee/subject Table of Contents to help locate items within the compilation. There are over 6000 items dating back to the 1950’s. Once items are identified, contact the reference staff to obtain copies.
