The Judge Ellen B. Ewing Foundation was established at the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law in 2005 with generous gifts from the Louisville Bar Foundation and the Women Lawyers Association of Jefferson County. Proceeds from Lawlapalooza fund summer fellowships for UofL law students to work in areas of family law, domestic violence and spouse abuse, and HIV/AIDS.

Upon graduation from the University of Louisville School of Law, she became a staff attorney for the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights. In 1975, she was appointed a part-time trial commissioner with Jefferson County Juvenile Court, and five monthslater became a full-time judge. Ewing was elected to Jefferson Circuit Court in 1983, and was one of only three women to have seved on that court when she retired in 1998.
