The University of Wisconsin Press and the Dane County Bar Association announce the publication of Lawyers Who Shaped Dane County: A History of The Practice of Law in the Madison Area, by Tom Ragatz, Paul Humphrey, and Sally Garbo Wedde.
The book is filled with history, photos, anecdotes, and stories of Dane County’s leading lawyers, following them through the transformations of their law firms, into government and politics, and to the bench.  It also traces the development of the Dane County Bar Association, women lawyers who made their mark on the profession, the courthouses, and the influence of the UW Law School.   This book is a comprehensive look at the active presence of our profession in Dane County, and the influence lawyers have had on our area.
