Here are just a few popular databases to get you started:

Now, you can accomplish the same result in minutes with a simple keyword search in the Wisconsin Headnotes database. With headnote summaries, a precise search may include just one or two terms.  This file contains headnotes to cases from Wisconsin Supreme Court and Court of Appeals.
