In the last episode of Jabot, I interview Patricia Cain, the editor of Leading the way: America’s first female law professors. The book, written by Herma Hill Kay, details the lives of the first 14 female law professors. Patricia and I also discuss the twists and turns in her life and career: studying law, being part of a circus troupe, starting a career in legal academia. Patricia highlights her experiences not only as a teacher, but also her experiences in law school. She also shares the best lessons she has learned, especially for those looking to start a life in law universities.

The Jabot Podcast is an offshoot of the Above the Law brand focused on the challenges that women, people of color, LGBTQIAs and other diverse populations face in the legal industry. Our name comes from none other than the notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the frill (decorative collar) she wore when speaking dissent from the bench. It’s a reminder that even when we don’t win, we are still a powerful force to be reckoned with.

Good listening !
