The Extraordinary Session

University of Wisconsin Law School, Room 2260, Madison, Wisconsin

Soon after the 2018 election, the Wisconsin Legislature convened a lame-duck extraordinary session. That session and the resulting legislation now face constitutional challenges on substantive and procedural grounds.


In January, the League of Women Voters filed suit in Dane County Circuit Court questioning the Legislature’s power to convene such a session. Then in February, the SEIU and other unions filed suit in the same court arguing that the legislative package violates the separation of powers in the Wisconsin Constitution.


Join us for a discussion with the attorneys representing the parties in each lawsuit. Professor Yablon will moderate the panel.
