The MWL Compendium Curated Lists

The MWL Compendium is an online database of resourced related to women in the legal profession.


In an effort to highlight particular resources and topic areas, MWL's Research Committee has asked MWL members to create curated lists of the most relevant, interesting, new, and thought-provoking resources about a particular issue or theme. Each month, MWL's Research Committee will share a new curated list. This month, our spotlighted list is Pathways to the Bench: Paved with the Quest for Equality and Justice, By Justice Wilhelmina Wright. Look for additional curated lists in the coming months.
