Georgetown University Law Center
April 20, 2015 —
Georgetown University Law Center congratulates its nine alumnae selected to The National Law Journal’s (NLJ) list of the most accomplished female attorneys working in the legal profession.
Chosen from hundreds of nominations, Kathryn Fritz (L’85), Meghan Ludtke (L’95), Janet McDavid (L’74), Erin Murphy (L’06), Linda Myers (L’89), Obrea Poindexter (L’93), Kathryn Ruemmler (L’96), Kara Farnandez Stoll (L’97) and Barbara Underwood (L’69), represent excellence in private practice, corporate counsel work, public interest representation, legal education and the judiciary, according to the NLJ.
In determining the "outstanding women lawyers," the NLJ considered nominees’ roles in the development of successful practices, especially new areas of law or practices typically dominated by men, and their performance in notable cases, including those resulting in precedent-setting rulings, victories at trial and significant settlements. It also evaluated influence in the public sector, including high-level government work, and representation of the underserved.
The NLJ will release a more in depth report about these women lawyers, available in print and online, May 4.Share This Article
