Judge Judy Honored with the Pathfinder Award

Judge Judy Sheindlin will receive the “Pathfinder Award” from The Texas Women Lawyers (TWL) in San Antonio on Friday, Feb. 19. Each year, TWL recognizes a Pathfinder — an individual who has been a champion promoting the advancement of women in the law and who exemplifies professionalism, leadership, and commitment to the public interest

The presentation will be at TWL’s Annual CLE at St. Mary’s Law School with Nicole Sheindlin accepting the award in person and Judge Judith Sheindlin providing video remarks. Nicole Sheindlin, who is also a co-founder of Her Honor Mentoring, will present the Key Note address “All Rise – Maximizing Our Impact Through Mentoring.” Her Honor Mentoring provides an opportunity for young women to reach their full potential through a unique approach to learning and growth.

“Judge Judy is an icon but I really appreciated her impact in a new way one day when I heard young disadvantaged kids arguing with each other regarding right versus wrong. One authoritatively quoted Judge Judy to prove she was right. I realized Judge Judy was not just a television show, but her influential dose of practical life skills was providing education to kids which they may not get at home.” said Deirdre Carey Brown, President-Elect of TWL.
