Women in the Law



On June 21, 2018, the Wisconsin Law Journal will honor outstanding achievement by the top women in the practice of law. We’re looking for those who, by achieving success, have also paved the way for success for other women in the law.

An event honoring Wisconsin’s Women in the Law will be held June 21, 2018 at the 360 Room at Discovery World in Milwaukee. Those chosen for this honor will also be featured in a special Wisconsin Law Journal publication.
