We are so pleased to announce that Tiffannie M. Kennedy, of Levinson and Stefani, in Chicago, Illinois, has been appointed as a member of the Standing Committee on Women and the Law of the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA).
The 28,000-member association, with offices in Springfield and Chicago, provides professional services to Illinois lawyers, and education and services to the public.
“Section councils and committees are the backbone of the ISBA,” said James F. McCluskey, of Lisle, ISBA President for 2018-2019. “Leadership is vital to the success of these groups.”
Committees have the responsibility for specific programs and activities in such areas as professional ethics and delivery of legal services. Sections provide continuing education and legislative services to lawyers who practice in a specific area of law. Each section is governed by a council appointed by the state bar president. Judges and non-lawyers also serve on committees and section councils.
The mission of the ISBA Standing Committee on Women and the Law is to study and to focus on areas of law uniquely affecting women; assess, design, and implement programs designed to satisfy women’s unmet legal needs; study and recommend legislation uniquely affecting women; provide a forum for action relating to women’s issues; and, explore ways to encourage women in their involvement in the legal community at all levels.
Tiffannie M. Kennedy received her J.D. from the University of Missouri at Kansas City in 2012, and focuses her practice in personal injury and trucking litigation.
