We have even more to celebrate this year as two of our own members will be receiving awards from the Women's Bar Association of the State of New York at its annual convention in Savannah, Georgia the weekend of May 31, 2019.   
 
Hon. Sandra B. Sciortino, J.S.C. will be receiving the Joan L. Ellenbogen Founder's Award given to a distinguished member of the Bar whose acts exemplify the essence of justice, thereby demonstrating a harmony with the founding principles of WBASNY, for a singular outstanding achievement, longstanding significant involvement, or a lifetime of constancy of purpose in advancing the status of women in society and the law.   
 
Carla Wise,  Esq. will be receiving the Stephanie E. Kupferman Juvenile Justice Award, given to a WBASNY member who has shown outstanding achievement in legal matters involving juveniles over a period of three or more years as a prosecutor, defense counsel, legal guardian, or judge.   
 
We are incredibly proud that WBAOSC will be so ably represented at Convention this year and of the outstanding accomplishments of our membership.  Congratulations to Judge Sciortino and Carla!
