The Women’s Bar Association of Illinois spotlights Karyn Bass Ehler, head of the firm’s Civil Rights practice group, in its Member Monday feature. Ms. Bass Ehler litigates matters involving wrongful convictions, excessive force and other Section 1983 claims, sexual harassment or assault, and discrimination, among other egregious civil rights violations. An “advocate for the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in law, government, and business,” she is dedicated to empowering women and other underrepresented groups in the legal profession—an underlying theme in her life’s work.
