On October 6, 2012 in Colorado Springs, CO, Beth Ermatinger Hanan was inducted as a fellow in the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers. The Academy was founded in 1990 to advance the highest standards and practices of appellate advocacy and to recognize outstanding appellate lawyers. Membership is by invitation only, and only after a rigorous background investigation including contact with the nominee’s opposing counsel in multiple appeals and with judges before whom the nominee has appeared. Ms. Hanan is one of three AAAL fellows in Wisconsin.
