Justice William A. Bablitch Fellowship
The Justice William A. Bablitch Fellowship honors the life and memory of its namesake, a 1968 graduate of the University of Wisconsin Law School. Justice Bablitch led a long career of public service. He began his career as one of the first volunteers to serve in the Peace Corps in the late 1960s. Justice Bablitch went on to serve as a Portage County District Attorney and a Senator in the Wisconsin State Senate. As a Senator, he revised sexual assault laws and authored the first campaign reform laws in the state. In 1983, Justice Bablitch was elected to the Wisconsin Supreme Court, where he spent the next 20 years of his career, before retiring in 2003.
