Program honoring 120th Anniversary of "30 Female Blackstones" set for Aug. 22
In August of 1893, thirty women lawyers from across the United States met in Chicago for the first-ever national meeting of women lawyers. The meeting was sponsored by the Queen Isabella Association and held in conjunction with the World's Columbian Exposition where the Chicago Legal News billed the event as "30 Female Blackstones Gather in Chicago”.
Paula Hudson Holderman, Illinois State Bar Association President and Julie Bauer, 7th Circuit Bar Association President, together with their host committee invite you to attend an event commemorating the 120th Anniversary of this historic milestone for women. The program and reception will be held from 3-7 p.m. on Aug. 22 at the offices of Winston & Strawn LLP, 35 W. Wacker, Chicago, 47th Floor.
Winston & Strawn LLP will apply for 2 Professional Responsibility Credit Hours from the Illinois MCLE Board.
