These Are Not Our Rules: A Public Interest and Women Oriented Law School to Improve the Lives of Women Both Within and Outside t

Sara Osborne

Part I of this comment briefly presents the results of studies that spurred the movement to create an all-women's law school. Part II demonstrates the impact of law school on both men and women's public interest commitment. Part III describes how the City University of New York (CUNY) School of Law and the Washington College of Law (WCL) Women and the Law Program can inform the creation of the curriculum and teaching methodology for a public interest and women oriented law school (PIWOLS) and suggest how a PIWOLS can build upon that foundation. Part IV illustrates that a PIWOLS can overcome many of the weaknesses and criticisms of the proposal for an all-women's law school. Part V reveals that many of the suggested advantages of an all-women's school can also be achieved by a public interest and women oriented law school.
