Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. Announces Contribution to Newly Named Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson Reading Room at the Wisconsin Historical Society Library

Madison, Wis. – Retired Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson has been honored by having the Reading Room at the Wisconsin Historical Society Library named after her.  This Executive Order issued by Governor Evers is an appropriate and deserved recognition of the many contributions Justice Abrahamson has made to the law and the historic significance of her being Wisconsin’s first female Justice of the Supreme Court.

Habush Habush & Rottier Law Firm is pleased to announce a $10,000 contribution to help fund the objectives set out by Governor Evers,  which include both a virtual exhibit focusing on the life and contributions of Justice Abrahamson and a scholarship fund that will award, on an annual basis, worthy law students that have proven to espouse and honor her legacy.

As a lawyer, professor and Justice of our Supreme Court, Shirley Abrahamson is a model for all of us.  Her dedication to the law has inspired generations of lawyers and judges. Her groundbreaking career has led the way to the ever-increasing participation and influence of women in the law.

On October 27th at 11 am there will be a dedication and portrait unveiling for the Retired Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson Reading Room. Please join Governor Tony Evers, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin and Retired Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Janine Geske for a virtual celebration. Click here to join.
