Upcoming events

    • Thursday, July 20, 2017
    • 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
    • Splash--A Painting Bar, 184 N. Broadway


    Join AWL for a relaxing evening of networking and creating at Splash--A Painting Bar. Guided by a local artist, you’ll create a piece of your own using this original watermelon painting as your inspiration, all while enjoying great company, snacks and drinks. No artistic skills required! Summer interns and other guests are welcome.

    $35 ($40 for non-members) allows you to create your own version of a painting to be selected soon -- check back for more details! The first hour will be dedicated to learning the artist’s methods and the rest of the session will allow you to expand upon your newly acquired knowledge and create something truly unique, all while relaxing and socializing with the members and guests of AWL. The cost for the event also includes light appetizers and one beverage.

    Reservations are required and must be made by Friday, July 15. Registrations made and not kept will be billed.

    • Wednesday, July 26, 2017
    • 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
    • Husch Blackwell, 555 E. Wells Street, room 19H
    John Emanuel of Husch Blackwell will speak on the new partnership audit rules that will take effect January 1, 2018. The discussion will cover an overview of the new rules, methods for opting out of the rules, and how the rules impact the preparation and review of partnership agreements and LLC operating agreements. An understanding of these rules is critical for all professionals who regularly advise partnerships and LLCs. Food will be served and we are applying for 1.0 CLE credit from the Wisconsin Bar.

    Please RSVP to Jackie Wilcox by July 19th.

    At our Annual Meeting each September, we recognize several individuals who have made a difference within the legal community and the community at large. AWL gives four awards which recognize these important contributions:
    • Mentoring
    • Pro Bono Service
    • Community Involvement
    • Founders Award
    The Founders Award will be given to an AWL member who has significantly contributed to the advancement of women in the legal profession, and whose career demonstrates dedication to the highest levels of professional ethics and excellence.

    With the exception of the Founders Award (members only), nominations are open to AWL members and non-members. Selection preference is given to members, however. The purpose of our annual awards is in support of our mission, which is:
    • to promote the welfare, interests and professional development of lawyers who are women;
    • to promote the legal interests of women generally;
    • to maintain the honor and integrity of the legal profession;
    • to advance justice for all individuals.
    With our busy schedules, we often do not take the time to recognize the great efforts and contributions of our colleagues. Please take a moment and consider those individuals that you know who are deserving of recognition and tell us about it! Submit your nominations, along with a brief explanation as to why your nominee is so deserving, to Shannon Braun.

    The deadline for nominations is Friday, August 4th
