Washington University Journal of Law & Policy


Generations of women have helped make Washington University School of Law one of the most exciting places to study, learn, and research in the world. To celebrate these contributions, WashULaw hosted a year-long celebration of its women. Led by Professor Rebecca Hollander-Blumoff, the “Year of the Woman” included a special speaker series, banners across campus, small group meetings, and most importantly a feeling of excitement and awe across campus for the many accomplishments that WashULaw women have achieved over the past 150 years. This historic milestone cements the institutional stature of the law school, and highlights its well-earned reputation as a forward-thinking community of diverse students and scholars.
