Hon. Karen Uplinger Retirement Party
December 6 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Central New York Chapter
Please plan to join us for an evening honoring Judge Karen Uplinger for her years of service to our community, on the occasion of her retirement from the bench.
The event, sponsored by the CNYWBA, will be held on Thursday, December 6 from 5:00-7:00pm at the Chop House on Waring. Details to follow.
Before she became a Syracuse City Court Judge, Karen Uplinger was a trailblazing solo practitioner, a Family Court Hearing Examiner, and a Syracuse Common Councilor. Judge Uplinger was also well-known as one of the Onondaga Five, a group of women attorneys who led the effort to allow women to receive felony case assignments as well as to allow women to attend Onondaga County Bar Association meetings and serve on the OCBA board of directors. In 2003 the Five, including Judge Uplinger, were awarded the Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York (WBASNY) Founder’s Award.
Please mark your calendars!
