History

Formal legal education in Milwaukee is said to have begun on October 12, 1892, when eleven students gathered to study law under the tutelage of local attorneys.  The group called itself the Milwaukee Law Class and secured volunteer services of its instructors, William H. Churchill, Sr., and Franklin Spies, thus avoiding the need to charge tuition.  Mr. Churchill was the regular lecturer on Torts and related subjects; Mr. Spies taught Contracts.  In 1896, with the addition of several other faculty members, the institution changed its name to Milwaukee Law School.  All classes were held at night in various rented locations in downtown Milwaukee.
