Abstract:     
The Association of American Law Schools ("AALS") Women in Legal Education ("WLE") was founded in 1970, a year before I began law school. In 1970 female students made up only about 8.6 % of the law students in American law schools, the percentage of female faculty members was certainly even lower, and the percentage of female law school deans, even smaller than that.'

This reflection is based on files from my years of being active in the WLE Section. I still have hard copies of the newsletters from 1984 to 1998. Younger members cannot imagine the days when hard copy was the only way to communicate. It was during that time that I was most involved in the WLE Section.
