Women's History Month

Brooklyn Law School Women Making History

Women were welcomed at Brooklyn Law School from its founding in 1901 – one of the few law schools at the time to admit women. Over the last 116 years, our alumnae have been trailblazers in the law, public service, civil rights, politics, business, and government.

Meet some of the courageous and brilliant women of Brooklyn Law School who have blazed trails through the decades for women everywhere.
