    For the past four to five years, a small group of Women in Legal Education Section members, led by Professor Marie Failinger (Mitchell Hamline School of Law), have been recording oral histories of women in the legal academy. The Oral History Project’s goal is to gather as many stories as possible to develop a robust library of histories that can be used for research, study, or enjoyment. More than 40 women have been interviewed as of January 2018. In this session, panelists will explain the Oral History Project and share thoughts, reactions, and experiences, as we show clips from the Oral History Project about decisions that led women into the legal academy, often at a time where there were few women on law faculties.
