Barbara Babcock - Woman Lawyer

Saturday, September 24, 3:30 pm
The first case argued by California’s first woman lawyer was her own. Clara Foltz (1849-1934), rejected from law school because of her gender, sued for and won admission. In her biography of this remarkable woman, Babcock, professor of law emerita at Stanford, recounts Foltz’s struggles and many achievements, which included her work on progressive issues including women’s rights, establishing the role of public defender, and raising five children.
