The Wisconsin Supreme Court presides in Madison and consists of seven Justices, each of whom are elected for ten-year terms (or appointed by the governor if there is a midterm vacancy). It is the court of last resort for the state of Wisconsin in matters pertaining to state law.

It has discretion whether to hear most appeals, although it does have original jurisdiction over some cases. This is similar to the U.S. Supreme Court in procedure.
