Scholarship Fundraiser to Be Held by Women's Bar Association Foundation

The Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association Foundation has created the Inaugural Hon. Sylvia Hinds-Radix Scholarship for a final-year Brooklyn Law School student pursuing public service and the advancement of women in the law. A fundraising event for the scholarship will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 26, at Giando on the Water, in Williamsburg.

The Foundation seeks to help a Brooklyn Law School student follow in Justice Hinds-Radix's footsteps. The judge is a former president of the Brooklyn Women's Bar Association and a longtime board member of the Association. Justice Hinds-Radix’s many distinguished positions include that of current Corporation Counsel for the City of New York; former Associate Justice of the NY State Appellate Division, Second Department; Administrative Judge for NY State Supreme Court, Kings County; and Justice, NY State Supreme Court. She has served as a role model for women attorneys for numerous years, having devoted her working life to public service at the highest levels.

The Association has strong ties to Brooklyn Law School—one of its founding members, Jeannette Goodman Brill, Esq., was one of the Law School’s first female graduates in 1908 and later became the first woman magistrate in Brooklyn.

Brooklyn Law School thanks the scholarship sponsors for their generosity. Register for the event at
