Fun Fact Friday! This week's answer is in response to one of our Facebook followers: Who was the first woman lawyer and where did she go to school and practice? As it varies from country to country, we focused only on the U.S. With this being black history month, we found that in 1872 Charlotte E. Ray was the first female African-American lawyer who graduated from Howard Univ. School of Law and was admitted to the D.C. bar that same year (that is her in the picture). According to the Library of Congress, the first female lawyer was Arabella Mansfield. She was admitted to the bar in 1869 in Iowa even though she didn't go to law school, she studied law in her brother’s office for two years. In 1870, Esther Morris in Wyoming was the first to become a Judge. In 1928, Genevieve Cline was the first to become a federal judge, U.S. Customs Court. In 1932, Florence Allen was the first to become a federal appellate judge, the U.S. Court of Appeals, Sixth Circuit.
