Retired Judge Anne Dranginis Discusses Her Distinguished Legal Career with the Connecticut Law Tribune
In it's new column, "5 Questions," the Connecticut Law Tribune interviewed Retired Judge Anne C. Dranginis on her distinguished legal career, which includes serving for more than two decades as a Connecticut Superior and Connecticut Appellate Court Judge and Chief Administrative Judge for Family. When asked about the most significant trends related to family law, she expressed hope that the bench and the bar can work together to fine tune the current family court system to make it work for all litigants. An increase in the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution, she said, has helped to reduce the amount of conflict and cost for those who opt to use this procedure for settling disputes.
Judge Dranginis has been a driving force to promote the standards for the advancement and recognition of women throughout her career. Upon leaving law school, she became an attorney when lawyers were "a men's only club." Since that time, there has been an increase in the number of women in the legal profession, although she noted that the percentage of women in powerful, policy or decision-making positions is still not sufficient.
