Lunch with Catherine Weiss
Join YLW for lunch with Catherine Weiss, one of the original writers on the issue of gender at Yale. Catherine’s article, The Legal Education of Twenty Women, co-authored with Louise Melling, documents the experiences of twenty women in the YLS Class of 1987. The essay explored four different ways women in the study felt alienated at YLS: “from ourselves, from the law school community, from the classroom, and from the content of legal education.” This will be a great opportunity to discuss the role of women at YLS with someone with a perspective that may or may not be very different from our own. Lunch will be served from 12 - 12:45 PM in Room 121. Please RSVP to Lauren Gerber if you wish to attend.
