Pioneering Women Lawyers: From Kate Stoneman to the Present


Kate Stoneman and the stories of pioneering women in law are the subjects of the new American Bar Association book Pioneering Women Lawyers: From Kate Stoneman to the Present.

The book, edited by Albany Law School Associate Dean Patricia E. Salkin, documents Kate Stoneman's legislative triumph to become the first woman admitted to practice law in New York. It is told through 12 keynote speeches delivered on each annual Kate Stoneman Day. These include N.Y. State Chief Judge Judith S. Kaye, the late Hon. Constance Baker Motley, the Hon. Mary Donohue and Jeanine Pirro. It also includes a foreword written by Albany Law School President & Dean Thomas F. Guernsey, background history by former Albany Law School Kate Stoneman Chair in Law & Democracy Katheryn D. Katz, and introduction by Albany Law School Professor Mary Lynch.
