    More than 120 lawyers representing 16 different states gathered in Milwaukee last month for ACS’s first-ever National Lawyer Convening. We were honored to serve as co-hosts of this gathering, which was both a great success and a lot of fun. It was exciting to welcome our ACS counterparts from all corners of the nation to Wisconsin, and inspiring to draw on their energy and to learn about how much ACS Lawyer Chapters are doing coast to coast.

    From October 19 to October 21, progressive lawyers, judges and legal advocates from around the country gathered in beautiful Milwaukee, Wis. for the first-ever ACS National Lawyer Chapter Convening. There were more than 120 people in attendance with representatives from 16 states and the District of Columbia, including 19 ACS Lawyer Chapters, and what a time we had together!

    The event started with a gathering at the grand Milwaukee City Hall Rotunda with welcome speeches from Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and ACS President Caroline Fredrickson. The energy of the attendees’ enthusiasm was palpable as they networked and connected with ACS members from similar legal practice areas.
