Texas Women Lawyers honors Judge Judy with the 2016 Pathfinder Award.
The group presented the Honorable Judith Sheindlin with the award Friday in San Antonio. Each year an individual is recognized for their contributions to the advancement of women in law.
TWL President Elect Deirdre Carey Brown says part of what makes Judge Sheindlin a pathfinder is the way she gives back to mentoring young women. With her step-daughter, Nicole Sheindlin the two founded Her Honor Mentoring which gives young women a chance to succeed.
