Interested in studying law? These famous female lawyers are the inspiration you need to apply for a law degree.
Women working in law is at an all-time high, but studies show that there’s still widespread gender bias in the industry. It’s not just less pay and fewer promotions either. Female lawyers (particularly women of colour) are more likely to be interrupted, get mistaken for non-lawyers, and are expected to do more office housework.
Furthermore, the latest Financial Times research indicates women are still missing from top ranks of law firms. So it’s a good job there are plenty of inspiring lawyers out there who are blazing the trail. Here are some of the most inspiring lawyers who have made their mark in history.
Madge Easton Anderson
The UK’s first ever female solicitor was Madge Easton Anderson, who graduated in Glasgow and followed on to work as an apprentice law agent at the practice of Maclay Murray & Spens in 1920.
She was the first woman allowed to qualify as a solicitor following a successful petition to the Court of Session (Scotland’s highest civil court). But what make’s Anderson one of the most inspiring lawyers of all time is her dedication to helping others during her life.
She was known for volunteering free legal advice to residents in the local community who could not afford to hire a solicitor to deal with their affairs. And her compassion inspired the later launch of the Free Legal Dispensary at the University of Glasgow.
