New Blog and Website for Women and the Law

There's a great new resource that's launching this month on the web and in real space: it's called Ms. JD, and you can learn more about it at their website. There are some interesting posts up already including one by Elena Kagan and one by 9th Cir. Judge Smith ("Wanted for Judicial Clerkships: Women with More Law Review Credentials"). The blog features (or promises to feature) posts on a regular basis by Barbara Babcock, Harold Hongju Koh, Shirley Hufstedler, Herma Hill Kay, Dahlia Lithwick, Judge Dorothy W. Nelson, Judge Deanell Reece Tacha, and Judge Kim Wardlaw. Here's a little more information:

What is Ms. JD?

Concerned by the rates at which women opt out of the legal profession, the lack of representation of women in the highest courts and echelons of the legal community, and the role of gender in the progression of many women’s legal careers, a group of female law students from Boalt Hall (UC Berkeley), Cornell, Georgetown, Harvard, NYU, Stanford, UCLA, UT Austin, the University of Chicago, the University of Michigan, the University of Virginia, and Yale came together and created Ms. JD. Serving women in law school and the legal profession, Ms. JD will be an online community that provides a forum for dialogue and networking among women lawyers and aspiring lawyers. Ms. JD will launch at a national conference co-hosted by Yale Law Women at Yale Law School on March 31, 2007.

Best of luck to Liz Pederson and the others behind this valuable project.
