Salve! Welcome to the WJCL Crash Course Constitution! Here, you will find helpful, easily navigable information to answer any questions you may have about how the Wisconsin Junior Classical League operates, without the sometimes confusing language employed by the WJCL Constitution and Bylaws. The official document is organized into a Constitution and Bylaws, each of which is split into articles, which are further divided into sections.

This site is organized with 6 main headers, with each having subsections that detail every single part of the constitution and bylaws. Also, there are helpful hyperlinks on each page that connect different pages on the site, so any question you have on one page can likely be answered by clicking on purple underlined text, which will lead you to another page.

Alternatively, if you would like to see the specific text relating to any part of the constitution, any given information here is backed up by supertext of the form C_._ or B_._ . These respectively refer to either the Constitution or Bylaws. The first digit refers to the article the information was garnered from, and the second digit refers to the section. You can attribute all information to WJCL Constitution and Bylaws.
