Women in the Practice of Law


Judge Louise Gruner Gans

The photograph shows Louise Gruner Gans, a graduate of New York University Law School and now Acting Justice of the New York Supreme Court, First District, on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington D.C. Her son is in the foreground.

This case was the first in U.S. history to be argued, on all sides, solely by women.

The quill pen is awarded to all who argue before the U.S. Supreme Court. (Notice the gender-specific personal pronoun used in the instruction card.)
