Boundless Together: Five UW Law grads recognized for making a difference in Wisconsin

UW Law School graduates are using their legal educations to make a difference all around Wisconsin. In turn, Wisconsin’s communities have shared inspiration, energy and essential resources with the university.

Here are five uniquely Wisconsin stories of that innovation and inspiration that feature UW Law alumni.
