Training Materials

The Training Materials page contains a variety of material, such as outlines, articles, sample motions, forms and checklists, from training programs and conferences sponsored by the Wisconsin State Public Defender's Office (SPD). The material has been arranged by topic and some material is included in more than one topic.

Keep in mind the law is always evolving and subject to different interpretations. Lawyers and others should not rely solely on the material here when making decisions on behalf of clients. Rather, independent research and analysis should be done in order to ensure high quality legal representation.
