The Wisconsin State Constitution
The Wisconsin State Constitution provides an outstanding constitutional and historical account of the state's governing charter. In addition to an overview of Wisconsin's constitutional history, it provides an in-depth, section-by-section analysis of the entire constitution, detailing the many significant changes that have been made since its initial drafting. This treatment, along with a table of cases, index, and bibliography provides an unsurpassed reference guide for students, scholars, and practitioners of Wisconsin's constitution. The second edition adds commentary on significant Wisconsin Supreme Court cases and a few appellate court cases decided after 1995 through 2018. It also adds several resources to the bibliography and covers 23 years of history including several new constitutional amendments.
