Event Date



Sarah Weddington, who represented “Jane Roe” in the Roe v. Wade case before the Supreme Court 25 years ago, delivered the law school’s 1998 Edith House Lecture Sept. 23. She took the case pro bono, six years out of law school herself. She now teaches at the University of Texas. Some excerpts: “It was kind of an instantaneous development of these [abortion rights] cases around the country. I thought I was underpinning a mountain of these cases, but I never thought mine would be the one to reach the U.S. Supreme Court.”
