Reflections on Women in the Law

Presented by Retired New Jersey
Supreme Court Justice Virginia Long

As a 1966 graduate of Rutgers School of Law – Newark, and a practicing attorney and jurist for decades thereafter, Justice Virginia Long is uniquely qualified to offer reflections on women in the legal profession. When Justice Long began her legal career, women were still strangers in a male-dominated profession. Nevertheless, she quickly rose to positions of prominence and leadership, including as Commissioner of Banking. Few women had served as judges when Governor Byrne tapped her for the bench in 1978; and even fewer had served as justices of the New Jersey Supreme Court when Governor Whitman elevated her to that position in 1999. On the High Court she served with distinction until her retirement in 2012. Mark your calendar and join us as Justice Long shares with us her unique insights into women in the legal profession based on her legal career now spanning 50 years.
