MILWAUKEE – Maxine White, Chief Judge of the Milwaukee County Circuit Court, will be the featured guest in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, Nov. 18, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

Judge White became chief judge in August, and is responsible for the administration of judicial business in the Milwaukee County Circuit Court. During her visit to the Law School, Judge White will discuss her vision and goals as the new chief judge and offer her perspective on the community’s recent surge in violent crime. What are she and other judges seeing in their courtrooms? What kinds of factors are judges weighing in sentencing? What’s at the root of the crime problem, and what can be done to address it?

Judge White received her law degree from Marquette University Law School. She was appointed to the bench in 1992 and has since been elected four times. Prior to becoming a judge, Judge White served as an assistant U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.

Seating is available, although registration is required and is available online. For those who can’t attend in person, a “watch now” button will be added to the registration page on the day of the event, providing access to a live video stream.

Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, the “On the Issues with Mike Gousha” interviews of newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars and conferences on significant issues of public importance, the Law School serves as the region’s leading venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
