The Angelos Law Center was the site of a panel discussion on Tuesday, Sept. 8 to mark the publication of Finding Justice: A History of Women Lawyers in Maryland since 1642. Edited by Maryland Court of Appeals Judge Lynne A. Battaglia, the book tells the story of how women overcame obstacles to enter the legal profession and how their work has influenced the practice of law and society at large.

A news release from the University of Virginia Press calls the book a “scholarly tour de force.”

The release continued: “Even as the book presents the past accomplishments of women lawyers, the difficulties they overcame, and what resources were critical to their achievements, it also looks to the future, for women still face unique obstacles in pursuing legal careers. By understanding better the history of women lawyers, it is hoped that the future of law in Maryland and the United States will be one of increased diversity and accessibility.”

The book is available for sale at Amazon.com.
