An honors graduate from Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law, Judge Megan Goldish sits on the Circuit Court of Cook County, the Domestic Violence Division. Judge Megan Goldish currently serves as the first vice-president of the Decalogue Society of Lawyers.
Established in 1934, the Decalogue Society of Lawyers is the nation’s oldest Jewish bar Association. The Society aims to advance the professions, encourage the best practices in bar and bench, educate the public on the judicial system, and lobby for the betterment of the system, especially on Jewish issues and antisemitism. The Society also endeavors to build relationships with other ethnic and religious organizations and the Jewish community.
Members enjoy a minimum of 18 general CLE credits, three professional responsibility credits yearly, and a 10–20 percent discount on all Decalogue events. Also, the member gains automatic membership in the Alliant Credit Union, a member-owned financial and credit cooperative.
The Society has broadened the bar’s visibility by collaborating with other associations, including the American Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists (AAJLJ). The initiative aims to increase the presence of each association and share individual benefits among the members, such as networking, legal lectures, and professional development tools.
