Supreme Court oral arguments by early women lawyers

Supreme Court oral arguments by three pioneering women lawyers are the subject of an article in the lWillebrandtatest issue of the Journal of Supreme Court History. Author Marlene Trestman found that Mabel Walker Willebrandt (pictured at left) presented 23 arguments between 1921 and 1933, Bessie Margolin presented at least 24 arguments between 1945 and 1965, and Beatrice Rosenberg presented 28 arguments between 1946 and 1971. Trestman lists all the arguments and provides interesting background about some of them.
