The National Conference of Women’s Bar Associations (NCWBA) has partnered with renowned custom publisher Faircount Media Group in the production of a special commemorative publication celebrating the 150th anniversary of the first woman admitted to the practice of law in the U.S., Arabella Mansfield. The publication will tell the story of Arabella Mansfield and how she became the trailblazer for women in law. We will examine the impact many exceptional women have had on the industry and how female lawyers in many states have played their part in the development and growth, diversity and equality within law firms and legal history. The publication will also feature many of the law firms, both big and small, who have led the way for equality and diversity and making sure that all have a place no matter of gender, race or color.
Arabella A. Mansfield became the first female lawyer in the United States in 1869, admitted to the Iowa bar; she made her career as a college educator and administrator. Despite an Iowa state law restricting the bar exam to males, Mansfield had taken it and earned high scores. Shortly after her court challenge, Iowa amended its licensing statute and became the first state to accept women and minorities into its bar.
The National Conference of Women’s Bar Associations (NCWBA) is a unique organization of women’s bar associations, for women’s bar associations, representing approximately 35,000 women lawyers. It provides a national forum for exchanging ideas and information vital to organizational growth and success in today’s profession.
Raising the Bar: America Celebrates 150 Years of Women Lawyers will be distributed extensively throughout a national community of legal professionals dedicated to the development and improvement of the legal profession and its many related disciplines. Copies will be circulated by controlled distribution to NCWBA members and member organizations, law firms, attorneys, legal professionals, legal academicians, law schools, associations, not-for-profits, and the offices of Chief Legal Officers and General Counsel within Fortune 1000 companies across the country.
