Fairchild Lecture Series Welcomes Hon. William K. Sessions III

The Fairchild Lecture

The Thomas E. Fairchild Lectureship was established at the University of Wisconsin Law School as a tribute to Judge Fairchild, a 1937 law graduate, former Justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, later Chief Judge and Senior Circuit Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

Initiated by Judge Fairchild's law clerks, the lectureship brings to the University of Wisconsin-Madison a distinguished member of the legal profession from the bench, bar, or academia to speak on a topic of importance to the profession. Find out more about the Fairchild Lectureship here.
