Finding Justice: A History of Women Lawyers in Maryland since 1642

Although women were not officially permitted to practice law in Maryland until 1902, the history of women acting as lawyers in Maryland is storied, going back to the earliest decades of colonial America. Today, of course, women serve not only as lawyers but also as judges, professors, and elected officials, and anywhere from in local government to the U.S. Senate. Finding Justice tells the remarkable story of how women overcame historical obstacles-legal, social, and economic-to enter the legal profession and how their pioneering work has influenced the practice of law and society at large. The volume contains a CD with the first-evercompiled list of the nearly 25,000 women who have been admitted to the bar in Maryland.
