Brooksley Born talked about the American Bar Association’s The Women Trailblazers in the Law Project (WTP) that captures the oral histories of women pioneers in the legal profession. She talked about the origins and purposes of the collection and what it has revealed about the experiences of women entering the legal profession in the mid-20th century.
The WTP collection is housed at two repositories: the Library of Congress and the Schlesinger Library at Harvard. Now sponsored by the ABA’s Senior Lawyers Division (SLD), the project was initiated by the Commission on Women in the Profession.
