during the association's annual meeting.

Nina Neff, a third-year University of Wisconsin Law student, was named a Ms. JD Fellow for 2019. She is one of ten law students nationally to receive the honor.

Ms. JD, a nonprofit agency that supports early career women lawyers, co-founded the fellowship program with the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession.

At UW Law, Neff serves as Moot Court coach, senior editor of the Wisconsin International Law Journal, and president of QLaw. She also completed internships with the Veterans Law Center and the Wisconsin Supreme Court and served as a summer associate at DeWitt. She is interested in administrative law, appellate advocacy and government relations.

Fellows are selected from across the country on the basis of academic achievement, student involvement, passion for the legal profession, and commitment to improving the experience of women attorneys and law students.

As part of their award, fellows receive financial support to attend ABA and Ms. JD events, as well as mentoring from leading female lawyers. Neff's mentor for the fellowship is Pamela Barker, a 1979 UW Law graduate.
