On March 21, 2007, Katheryn D. Katz, then Albany Law's Kate Stoneman
Chair in Law and Democracy, was invited to discuss the legacy of Kate
Stoneman on WAMC's The Roundtable.
Professor Katz talked about the difficulties Kate─the first female
graduate of Albany Law School and the first woman to pass the New York
state bar exam─faced as a woman who wanted to be a lawyer in the 1800s.
As a result of her tenacity, her campaign to amend the Code of Civil
Procedure to permit the admission of qualified applicants without regard
to sex or race proved successful.
On March 30, 2006, Kate Stoneman─the first woman admitted to the New
York State Bar in 1886 and Albany Law School's first female graduate in
1898─was featured on WMHT-TV's InSight.
