Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley S. Abrahamson has won the State Bar of Wisconsin's Heffernan Award for her 25 years of dedicated service to the Wisconsin state high school mock trial tournament.
The award was presented by Lindsey Draper, chair of the State Bar's law-related education committee, during a March 16 ceremony at Monona Terrace in Madison.
