Women Who Have Made An Impact

March 12, 2021

Throughout March, the Florida Justice Association celebrated women in law by highlighting FJA members and sharing pieces of knowledge they’ve learned as women in the legal field. As part of this celebration, the FJA’s Women’s Caucus announced the creation of the ‘Ruth Bader Ginsburg Award’! Named after the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the purpose of this award is to honor a woman whose qualifications include noteworthy legal accomplishments, an active interest in and positive influence upon the profession, and constructive contributions in civic and community matters. The winner must be an FJA woman member, have had a direct impact on other women, the legal community, the FJA, and the issues that affect women through leadership, mentoring, activism, and/or by providing opportunities to others.
