Michael Best is proud to be a sponsor of the 35th Annual Women Judges' Night. The event, hosted by the Association of Women Lawyers (AWL), honors the women of Wisconsin's judiciary.
Each year, Women Judges’ Night features a speaker who shares her unique perspective on the law and how women have changed not only the landscape of the rules and regulations, but the landscape of the practice in general. They bring with them a history of how their own career has been shaped by being a woman in the legal profession. This year our keynote speaker will be Hon. Patricia Gorence, U.S District Court Judge for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.
Women Judges’ Night not only celebrates women judges; it is also a forum for encouraging young women to pursue a career in the law. Four scholarships are awarded each year by the Association for Women Lawyers Foundation to current Marquette University and University of Wisconsin law students with the money raised from direct donations and corporate sponsorships of Women Judges’ Night.
