Mission: Ms. JD is an online forum for women in all arenas of the legal profession. Ms. JD is a nonprofit, nonpartisan community coordinated by law students for the entire legal community. The site is administered by an advisory board of women law students who represent schools nationwide. Contributors are dedicated to reinforcing and expanding the representation of women in law school and the legal profession. Ms. JD fosters dialogue about women in the law. It does so with an appreciation of the interconnection between gender and race, ethnicity, sexuality, class, disability, religion, nationality, physical appearance, and age. Ms. JD provides a space for conversations about these complex issues and their possible solutions. Ms. JD explores the work of female attorneys and provides networking opportunities, critical analysis of relevant news, and thoughtful discussions for women about their chosen fields of law. Ms. JD also spotlights women in the law and explores women-friendly practices across a spectrum of legal institutions. Ms. JD seeks to improve the experiences of women in law school and the legal profession. Obstacles to equal participation hinder not only women in the law but also their colleagues, clients, children, and communities. Ms. JD consequently strives to give voice to why it matters that women continue to face these barriers. In doing so, Ms. JD spreads the word: women’s victories are everyone’s victories.
