Cheryl Weston '71 has received the 2015 Women in the Law award, presented by Wisconsin Law Journal. Weston is a senior lecturer at University of Wisconsin Law School.
The Women in the Law award is given annually to women who have achieved excellence in their legal careers and who have influenced other women to pursue legal careers. Recipients are likewise honored for their commitment to advancing opportunities for women within a practice area or segment of the profession, often in job settings that were historically closed to women.
Including Weston, eight UW Law alumnae received the award:
Kristin Bergstrom '79
Patricia Gibeault '80
Ann Murphy '79
Denasha Scott '97
Susan Sheeran '86
Deborah Tomczyk '94
Dorothea Watson '86
They were recognized, along with other Women in Law honorees, at a ceremony and dinner at Milwaukee's Pfister Hotel in June.
