This article details the educational and professional experiences of a representative group of women trial lawyers who graduated from law school fifteen years ago.
The women were feminists who were among the first to achieve professional success and juggle family responsibilities simultaneously. Their problems are detailed, and the development of women's bar associations is described. Because half of law school students are now women, they will not experience the same problems as did the few pioneer women law students of fifteen years ago. Women will know they have achieved equality in the legal profession when women lawyers are as unethical and criminal as some generations of men in the legal profession.
