About the Wisconsin Legal System

There are two federal courts in Wisconsin: a state supreme and a state court. In addition, there is a trial court with limited and general jurisdiction.

Nonpartisan elections are used to elect the seven justices of Wisconsin's Supreme Court, 16 judges of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, and 249 judges of Wisconsin Circuit Courts. The Supreme Court justices serve 10-year terms, while the other judges serve six-year terms. If they want to continue on the court's bench, all judges must run for reelection.

The Eastern District of Wisconsin and the Western District are the federal district courts for Wisconsin.

Two federal bankruptcy courts are located in Wisconsin. These courts have jurisdiction over bankruptcy cases. The Eastern District of Wisconsin Bankruptcy Court and the Western District of Wisconsin Bankruptcy Court is the federal bankruptcy courts in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court, which has seven judgeships, is the state's court-of-last resort. It has administrative and discretionary appellate authority. Original cases can be heard by the supreme court. The supreme court typically reviews appeals from the court of appeals.

The Wisconsin Court of Appeals serves as the intermediate appellate court for Wisconsin. The court of appeals is not subject to the same rules as the supreme court. It has primary jurisdiction and cannot choose which appeals it hears. The Wisconsin Court of Appeals' primary function is to correct mistakes in circuit court cases. Unless the Wisconsin Supreme Court rules otherwise, opinions of the Court of Appeals become binding precedents.

Circuit courts in Wisconsin are the trial courts that have original jurisdiction over criminal and civil cases. These courts are broken into branches. There are 249 circuit judges in the state. Each county has at most one branch, with six exceptions. The state is divided into nine administrative areas, but judges are elected county-by-county.

The state is first in the nation for the production of corn for silage and cranberries gingering. It produces more than half of the nation's cranberries. It also produces 97% of the nation’s ginseng. Wisconsin is also a major producer of sweet corn for processing, including potatoes, sweet corn, tart cherries, and maple syrup. A Wisconsin quarter depicts a Holstein cow, a corn ear, and a wheel made of cheese as an example of the state's importance in agriculture production. To promote state agricultural products, the state selects annually an "Alice in Dairyland".
