Former Presidents of ABA Say the Industry Has ‘More Work to Do’
At the American Bar Association annual meeting, eight leading female lawyers and past presidents of the ABA held a virtual panel where they stated that the organization has accomplished much to promote women in the legal profession, but there is more work to be done.
The panel included Laurel G. Bellows, Paulette Brown, and ALI members Martha W. Barnett of Martha W. Barnett LLC, Hilarie Bass of the Bass Institute for Diversity and Inclusion, Carolyn B. Lamm of White & Case, Judy Perry Martinez of Simon, Peragine, Smith & Redfearn, former ALI President Roberta Cooper Ramo of Modrall Sperling, and Patricia Lee Refo of Snell & Wilmer.
Roberta Cooper Ramo was the first woman president of the ABA, elected in 1995. She was also the first woman president of The American Law Institute. Read more about the panel here [subscription required].
