    The State Bar of Wisconsin was presented with the Association for Continuing Legal Education's 2004 Outstanding Achievement Award for the book Critical Terms in Criminal Proceedings in Spanish and English. The authors, Ron Benavides, U.W. 1993, and Luis Cuevas, U.W. 1992, were also honored by the State Public Defender's Office in October.

    The book promotes consistency in the translation of criminal justice terms and promotes improving the standard of representation of Spanish-speaking clients.

    "Their efforts affect the entire justice system," said State Public Defender Nicholas L. Chiarkas, Temple 1978. "I thank Luis and Ron for helping to ensure our criminal justice system is available and accessible to everybody.
