Every year we look forward to celebrating the Women of Law honorees. But because the current requirements of social distancing don’t permit us to safely come together in person, we will celebrate the Class of 2020 at a COVID-compliant virtual event on Thursday, Oct. 8 at 6 p.m.

In addition announcing the “Woman of the Year,” who will be selected by the class, the event will recognize each honoree individually; guests will have the opportunity to participate in the program and congratulate and celebrate the honorees via social media platforms from their homes or offices.

The honorees will be profiled in a special section appearing in the Oct. 12 issue of MiLW.
