Justice Brian K. Hagedorn was formally sworn into office as a justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court during a ceremony held in the Capitol Rotunda on Aug. 14. Former Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Gableman administered the oath of office at the investiture.

Before winning election to the Supreme Court, Hagedorn had served as a judge on the District II Court of Appeals since 2015. He previously worked as chief legal counsel to former Gov. Scott Walker, as an assistant state attorney general at the state Department of Justice, as a law clerk to then-Justice Gableman, and as an attorney in private practice. Hagedorn is a 2006 graduate of Northwestern University Law School. He earned a B.A., summa cum laude, with honors from Trinity International University.
