Ms. JD: An Online Forum for Dialogue and Networking Among Women Lawyers and Aspiring Lawyers


Concerned by the rates at which women opt out of the legal profession, the lack of representation of women in the highest courts and echelons of the legal community, and the role of gender in the progression of many women’s legal careers, in March 2006, a group of female law students from Boalt Hall (UC Berkeley), Cornell, Georgetown, Harvard, NYU, Stanford, UCLA, UT Austin, the University of Chicago, the University of Michigan, the University of Virginia, and Yale came together and created Ms. JD - an online forum for dialogue and networking among women lawyers.

According to the site's mission statement, the goal of Ms. JD is to foster dialogue about women in the law by providing a space for online conversations about issues facing women lawyers in the workplace. Ms. JD will also explore the work of female attorneys through spotlights of women in the law and women-friendly practices across a spectrum of legal institutions.

We felt particularly pleased about one post to the online forum that highlighted our Work Life Balance Calculator as a handy tool that's "pretty cool" - thanks for the positive feedback!
