U.W. Law School Dean Joins WILMIC Board of Directors

The WILMIC Board of Directors recently unanimously voted to appoint U.W. Law School Dean Margaret Raymond to a seat on the board. Dean Raymond fills the seat previously held by long-time Director and Board Chair William Mulligan. Mulligan passed away last year after serving on the board since the company’s inception in 1986.

“I am honored to be joining the Board of WILMIC. The company provides important services to Wisconsin lawyers, helping them manage risk and do great work for their clients. I’ve spent my career as a legal educator and professional responsibility scholar and teacher, and I hope to bring a useful perspective to the group. I look forward to making a contribution,” Raymond said.

Raymond has been the Dean of the law school since 2011. She earned her law degree from the Columbia University School of Law, where she was Editor-in-Chief of the Columbia Law Review. She also served as a law clerk to the late Justice Thurgood Marshall of the U.S Supreme Court and the late Judge James Oakes of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. She was a member of the faculty at the University of Iowa College of Law from 1995-2011.

In addition to teaching constitutional criminal procedure, substantive criminal law and ethics and professional responsibilities, Raymond is the co-author of a Professional Responsibility casebook, The Law and Ethics of Law Practice.

Raymond will fill the remainder of the term, which is then up for re-election in 2021.
