NAWJ PAST PRESIDENT HON. BEA ANN SMITH NAMED 2018
HONORABLE JOAN DEMPSEY KLEIN AWARD HONOREE OF THE YEAR
The NAWJ Awards Committee is pleased to share that the Honorable Bea Ann Smith (Ret.) is the 2018 Honorable Joan Dempsey Klein Honoree of the Year. Judge Smith is retired from the Third Court of Appeals of Texas and served as NAWJ President from 2002-2003. Judge Smith will be awarded the 2018 Honorable Joan Dempsey Klein Honoree of the Year award during the San Antonio Annual Conference.
Excerpts of the nomination for Judge Smith are below. We hope many of you can join us in San Antonio where we will honor her wonderful accomplishments.
Sincere congratulations to Judge Smith. We are grateful for her many contributions to NAWJ, the bench and entire legal community throughout her career, and look forward to celebrating her in October!
|Bea Ann Smith received her J.D. with honors from the University of Texas School of Law, where she served as editor on the Texas Law Review and was named to the Order of the Coif. After several years in private practice and teaching at the University of Texas Law School, Bea Ann was appointed to the Third Court of Appeals of Texas by Governor Ann Richards in 1991. There she served from 1991-2006. In Texas, all judges run for re-election every four years. Bea Ann retired without ever drawing an electoral opponent.
Bea Ann has been an NAWJ member since taking the bench in 1991. She served on the Executive Committee in the early 2000s and became President in 2002. She is a lifetime member and strong advocate for the organization.
While many of you may have witnessed her efforts on behalf of NAWJ as President and her involvement in the national meetings even today, you may not know the incredible impact she has on NAWJ here in Texas. She has been a mentor to many of our new women judges and is the first one to tell them they must join NAWJ. She has been actively involved in the Education Committee of the San Antonio Conference. She is in constant touch with others about the conference. She wants Texas to put its best foot forward as we welcome the members of an association that is so near and dear to her heart.
Bea Ann's judicial career in Texas was groundbreaking and legendary. The Central Texas legal community knows and respects her a great deal. She has at all times contributed to advancing the role of women in law, serving as a Sustaining Fellow of the Travis County Women's Law Association, and helping establish the Women's Law Section of the State Bar. Congratulations, Judge Smith!
Thank you also to the Chair of the Nominations Committee, Hon. Ariane Vuono, and the members of her committee for their work and for selecting a most deserving recipient.

NAWJ MEMBER JUSTICE KATHRYN WERDEGAR AWARDED
WITKIN MEDAL BY CALIFORNIA LAWYERS ASSOCIATION
The California Lawyers Association awarded the Honorable Kathryn M. Werdegar with the Bernard E. Witkin Medal for her pioneering legal career. Former California Supreme Court Justice Werdegar, center, received the Medal from the California Lawyers Association (CLA) last month for her pioneering legal career. CLA President Heather L. Rosing (left) and California Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye (right) were on hand for the presentation.
Early in her journey, Justice Werdegar became the first female editor-in-chief of the California Law Review at University of California at Berkeley School of Law. After a short stint as a justice on the 1st District Court of Appeal in the early 1990s, she served for 23 years as a state Supreme Court justice. Justice Werdegar, who retired last year, was the third woman — and first mother — to sit on the state's high court. Justice Werdegar was praised for her landmark opinions regarding environmental, labor and criminal law during her distinguished tenure on the court. "She writes with a clarity that is unmatched," Justice Cantil-Sakauye said. Following her brief remarks during the ceremony at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina, Justice Werdegar was publicly interviewed by two lawyers: Deputy Attorney General Karli Eisenberg and Duane Morris LLP partner Terrance J. Evans. She offered advice to women lawyers in the audience looking to climb the ladder in their careers. "I would say to women, 'You can do it. Believe you can do it. Believe in your case, and just do it,'" she said. She encouraged mothers who must step back from full-time work for family reasons to try to stay involved in their profession in a less-demanding way. "Most of us cannot certainly have it all at once, but you can have it all if you maintain some connection, some determination and have faith in the future," Justice Werdegar said.
NAWJ MEMBER HON. ANN BREEN-GRECO APPOINTED TO

NAWJ AWARDS FUTURE OF JUSTICE SCHOLARSHIP
TO ST MARY'S UNIVERTSITY SCHOOL OF LAW STUDENT
On Friday, October 5th, NAWJ will present a $500 scholarship to Danica McKinney, a law student at St. Mary's University School of Law in Texas, during NAWJ's 2018 Annual Conference in San Antonio. Ms. McKinney demonstrates a keen interest in the pursuit of justice. Prior to law school, she was a Qualified Intellectual Disabilities Professional Specialist, and witnessed so many instances where the justice system was presenting obstacles and failing the individuals she was trying to help. This has inspired her to become an attorney. In her words, "My goal as an attorney is to represent the underrepresented populations. I want to use my skills and my ability to help those people who have been limited by social, environmental, and physical factors receive the assistance they so need." Congratulations, Danica!
The Future of Justice Scholarship is an initiative of the Law School Outreach Committee.
NAWJ PRESIDENT JUDGE TANYA R. KENNEDY APPOINTS FORMER PRESIDENT
JUDGE LISA WALSH NAWJ LIAISON TO THE ABA COMMISSION ON
DOMESTIC AND SEXUAL VIOLENCE
NAWJ President Justice Tanya R. Kennedy has appointed former NAWJ President Judge Lisa S. Walsh as the NAWJ liaison to the ABA Commission on Domestic and Sexual Violence. Judge Walsh replaces Judge Ann Breen-Greco who has been the liaison for many years but has now been appointed by the ABA President as a Commissioner on the Commission. The mission of the ABA Commission on Domestic & Sexual Violence is to increase access to justice for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking by mobilizing the legal profession. The Commission offers a variety of resources for attorneys representing victims/survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking including training through in person programming and webinars.
Additionally, the Commission works to further national and ABA policy on behalf of victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence and/or stalking. For years the Commission has worked on supporting The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), a federal law aimed at ending violence against women and remedying the laws and social practices that have fostered and justified the history of violence against women.
The Commission's work also includes developing a Model Workplace domestic and sexual violence policy on employer response to domestic violence, sexual violence, dating violence and/or stalking.
NAWJ JUDICIAL EDUCATION COMMITTEE CO-CHAIR PROFESSOR JUDITH
RESNIK RESPONDS TO CURRENT SUPREME COURT EVENTS WITH 'THIS
QUESTION CHANGED THE FACE OF THE SUPREME COURT'
On Tuesday September 25, 2018, CNN published an op-ed 'This question changed the face of the Supreme Court,' authored by Professor Judith Resnik, Co-Chair of NAWJ's Judicial Education/Academic Network Committee. In the op-ed, she reminds us all of the 'women's question,' and the importance of assessing judicial candidates' attitudes toward women equality.
She also describes how the important work of gender task forces, many of which NAWJ members were pivotal in launching, grew to shape current attitudes toward equal treatment of all human beings in courthouses around the country:
Many institutions, faced with inquiries about facts and law, have changed significantly since 1991, when the hearings provided a window into the mistreatment of people in a host of other legal encounters. Concerned about unfairness in courts, the chief justices of state judiciaries commissioned serious research projects. By the early 1990s, when Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas testified, more than 30 jurisdictions had issued reports on gender and race and ethnic bias. Many of the reports documented what people saw when some senators questioned Anita Hill. As the 1986 New York State's Task Force on Women in the Courts put it: "Women uniquely, disproportionately, and with unacceptable frequency must endure a climate of condescension, indifference and hostility."
That report was joined by dozens of others, officially commissioned by state chief justices or state bars associations. Within the decade, more than 60 such reports existed and half the federal circuits had undertaken studies.
In response, many courts issued new rules to insist on dignified and equal treatment of women and men of all colors. New codes of conduct for lawyers and judges were put into place. This work continues. Indeed, on September 13, 2018, the US Judicial Conference -- the policymaking body of the federal courts -- put out for public comment new rules to change judicial ethical codes and require judges to take responsibility for workplace misconduct.
