2017 Reader Rankings

The Wisconsin Law Journal recognizes dozens of the top movers and shakers in Wisconsin’s law community each year. Those events include “Leaders in the Law”, “Women in the Law”, “Up & Coming Lawyers” and “Unsung Heroes”.

Each of those awards are picked by our editorial team, as well as a specially selected judging panel. But we wanted all of you to be the judges for these awards.

Please enjoy reviewing this year’s winners. We plan to do this each year, so please start planning now for your favorite categories, nominees and winners for 2018. Again, these are your awards, and we look forward to hearing from you.
