Are We Our Mother's Law Students?: Women's Law School Experiences and an Agenda for Action

Event Date



Felice J. Batlan delivered the University of Georgia School of Law's 27th Edith House Lecture on March 2, 2009 at 3:30 p.m. in the Larry Walker Room of Dean Rusk Hall. Dr. Batlan discussed the results of a survey, conducted by herself and four law students, which explored the gender dimensions of the law school experience at Chicago-Kent College of Law. After reading earlier studies about women in law school, the team designed a project to create, administer, and analyze a student survey about the differences between women’s and men’s experiences in law school. The presentation also explored the development of third wave feminist methodology, how it differs from second wave methodology, and how this difference may shape legal education.
