Belle Case La Follette Award Recipients

Belle Case La Follette Awards recognize three recent law school graduates who are State Bar of Wisconsin members, practicing law in Wisconsin, and representing underserved populations, such as people of modest means and those who live in rural areas without access to legal representation.

Three awards are given annually with a preference to: a Marquette University Law School graduate; a University of Wisconsin Law School graduate; and a graduate of an out-of-state law school who is practicing in Wisconsin.
