We Honor & Remember Former Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson

Yesterday, the state lost an iconic leader, Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Shirley Abrahamson. As the first woman to serve on the Wisconsin Supreme Court, the longest-serving justice in state history, and the first female to serve as chief justice, Abrahamson broke barriers and paved the way for future generations of women in law. Serving as a justice for more than four decades, including nearly 20 years as chief justice, Abrahamson set the tone of what it meant to be a public servant in every sense of the word. We send Chief Justice Abrahamson’s family our deepest condolences. Her legacy will forever live on as a trailblazer for women, and we thank her for her service and dedication to our great state.
