Inspiration for this exhibit comes from Judge Judith S. Kaye, whose biographical articles on Kate Stoneman (first woman admitted to the bar in New York State) and Birdie Amsterdam (first woman elected to the Municipal Court in New York County) have clearly demonstrated that the careers of early women lawyers are fruitful areas of research. This exhibit shows not only the high-profile successful women lawyers, but also those whose achievements are less well known but no less significant in providing career-building advice to the many women now in law school or considering law school. Today's women lawyers can become law professors, judges, corporation counselors, government officers, elected officials, and chief executives. Someday soon, one surely will become President.
