State Law Library Naming Ceremony

The Wisconsin State Law Library's downtown Madison location was named the David T. Prosser, Jr. State Law Library during a ceremony on Wednesday, October 20, 2016. The event, attended by a number of public officials, marked Prosser's 40 years of public service on the Supreme Court, Tax Appeals Commission, and Legislature prior to his retirement in July of 2016.

Last night's ceremony was also an opportunity to highlight the library's 180 years of service to the State of Wisconsin.

"Some have called law libraries 'the lawyer’s laboratory.' It is a lawyer's laboratory because lawyers and judges and others do investigative work here - just as a chemist may do investigative work in her laboratory," Chief Justice Roggensack said in a press release issued by the Wisconsin Court System.

The library is proud to continue to provide our professional expertise and outstanding collection to legal researchers throughout Wisconsin. Our three library locations in Madison and Milwaukee serve users through email and phone, as well as in person. All of our libraries are open to the public. Stop on by, give us a call, or send us an email.
