Judge Sykes at MULS Today

Judge Diane Sykes of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals will be at Marquette Law School today. She will be giving the 10th Annual E. Harold Hallows Distinguished Lecture, entitled Reflections on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. That event is already full, so unless you've registered, you're SOL. She will also be at a question and answer session for students in the law school at noon. This event will focus on her experiences on three different courts. Judge Sykes has served on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, the Wisconsin State Supreme Court, and the Milwaukee County Circuit Court.

Judge Sykes is one of Marquette Law School's most successful and prominent alums. Her name has become even more prominent with the recent Supreme Court vacancies. Judge Sykes' experience, qualifications, conservative judicial philosophy, age, and personal temperament (she's just a really nice person) have kept her name high on the list of potential nominees. It is rumored that Vice President Cheney is one of her biggest supporters in the White House. In the event of another vacancy before the next presidential election, Judge Sykes has a pretty good chance of being selected.
