Welcome The First Female Law Graduates

In 1909 Eveline MacLaren and Josephine Gordon Stuart became Scotland's first female law graduates; both were awarded an LLB from the Faculty of Law at Edinburgh Law School. One hundred years later their accomplishments formed the basis of Edinburgh Law School's '100 Years of Women in Law: An Edinburgh Centenary', a programme of events to celebrate the achievements of women in the legal profession.

 '100 Years of Women in Law: An Edinburgh Centenary' commemorates the lives of Josephine Gordon Stuart and Eveline MacLaren, and honours the successes of important female figures in today's legal world.
