Description

Does gender make any difference in the judicial decision-making process? Should it?

Join us for a discussion with Federal Circuit Court Judge Diane Sykes

Judge Sykes discusses issues that arose during the confirmation hearings for Justices Sotomayor and Kagan and shares observations about her experiences on the Wisconsin Supreme Court, where she was one of three female justices for most of her tenure and then part of a female majority for her last year on the court.

Judge Sykes was appointed to the Seventh Circuit Court in 2004 by President George W. Bush. Prior to her appointment, she served on the Wisconsin Supreme Court and the Milwaukee County Circuit Court. Judge Sykes earned her J.D. from Marquette University Law School.
