Ms. JD will celebrate its 15th anniversary in March 2021! 

Since its inception in 2006, the organization has grown from a small blog to a relentless force in the legal community. We now have over six program initiatives, a fellowship program, and an annual conference.

Join us as we celebrate this milestone and create many more. On October 27, 2015 we launched #MsJD10, our national fundraising campaign. Consider donating or creating a team of your own. Donations can be made using this link.  Then, challenge those around you to give to Ms. JD or give us some advice you wish you had ten years ago. Don't forget to use #MsJD10 when giving advice or asking for donations.

We hope you will participate in our celebration and continue our mission of supporting young women in the legal profession.
