WSLL Recommends: Methods of Practice

The Wisconsin Practice series is a time-honored research staple for both legal practitioners and librarians but one component of it is sometimes overlooked. Methods of Practice, comprised of four volumes, provides a concise discussion of the law along with practice strategies and over 500 forms for a wide range of legal practice areas, from real property to estate planning to family law. More than fifty attorneys contributed their legal expertise and experience to the 80-plus chapters in this title.

Several topics Methods of Practice covers that are hard to find elsewhere:
  • Foreclosure - including discussion of secondary mortgage foreclosures. Also contains an explanatory section on the foreclosure sale process, with a chart comparing a fair market sale and a judicial sale
  • Termination of joint tenancy and life estates
  • Land contracts with information on drafting a contract, remedies and foreclosure
  • Farm leases
  • Name change, including a description of what may occur at a name change hearing
  • Organizing a business and choice of form of business
  • Administrative proceedings such as unemployment insurance and workers' compensation
Methods of Practice and all the other titles in the Wisconsin Practice Series are available in print at our main library in Madison and our branch libraries in the Milwaukee and Dane County Courthouses. We also provide access to an electronic, searchable version through Westlaw, which is available on the public computers in all three libraries.
