Join QLaw, the UW Law School’s LGBTQ+ student and ally group, for a night of food, drink, and dancing. We will also welcome Ron Albers, the first openly gay Judge to be appointed by a Republican Governor, and a UW alum. After all this, a Queer Pressure Collective DJ will be on hand to send us of into the rhythm of the night.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Wisconsin Law Alumnus Ronald E. Albers committed 41 years of legal service as a judge, commissioner, public defender, sole practitioner, and civil rights advocate.
