Editor's Note: As part of Ms. JD's 5th Birthday celebration, we'll be looking back at our favorite posts over the years.
While Dean at Harvard Law School, now Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan penned this guest post for us.
Greetings—and congratulations to all—on the launch of Ms. JD! A little over a year ago, I prepared a sort of “status report” on women and the legal profession for a talk I had the honor of delivering at the Association of the Bar of the City of New York. It was a terrific opportunity to reflect on both the tremendous strides already made and the great way still to go. In hopes that some may find these thoughts of interest, I’m delighted to share them here.
I wish you all the best and applaud your efforts to expand this conversation.
Dean, Harvard Law School
