With the release of her memoir, Fish Raincoats: A Woman Lawyer’s Life, Barbara Babcock looks back on an extraordinary life and career punctuated by “firsts.” She was the first woman appointed to the faculty at Stanford Law School, the first woman to hold an endowed chair, and the first emerita. She pioneered the study of women in the legal profession with her book, Woman Lawyer: The Trials of Clara Foltz, a biography of the first woman lawyer in the west and a founder of the public defender movement.

The Stanford Center on the Legal Profession, the Stanford Faculty Women’s Forum, the Clayman Institute for Gender Research, the Levin Center for Public Service and Public Interest Law, and the Women of Stanford Law are pleased to celebrate Professor Babcock’s new book and remarkable career.  Books will be on sale.
