UGA law scholarship established in memory of legal trailblazer Phyllis Kravitch, former judicial clerks band together to create lasting tribute for the late jurist

Wednesday, January 15, 2020

By many accounts Phyllis A. Kravitch was a trailblazer. She entered the practice of law in 1944 when female attorneys were few and far between. She built her reputation at her father’s law firm, becoming the first woman Savannah Bar Association president in the mid-1970s, the first woman elected as a Georgia Superior Court judge in 1976 and the third woman to serve our nation as a U.S. Circuit Court judge in 1979. Her service on the U.S. Courts of Appeals lasted almost four decades. As a permanent tribute, more than 40 of her former judicial clerks created the Judge Phyllis A. Kravitch Scholarship Fund at the University of Georgia School of Law.
