Women Trailblazers Honored at Awards Luncheon
As the first woman lawyer in America, Margaret Brent was a role model for generations of women. Five women lawyers following in her trailblazing footsteps were honored on Sunday for their unique contributions to the legal profession at the 19th Annual Margaret Brent Women Lawyers of Achievement Awards Luncheon in Chicago.
“They come from very diverse backgrounds, but they share a common bond of having overcome significant obstacles to achieve remarkable success, said Roberta D. Liebenberg, chair of the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession, which hosted the event. “They also share with one another an unselfish commitment to mentor and give back to other women.”
