Celebrating 100 Years of Arkansas Women in Law

   On the 100th anniversary of women being in the law in Arkansas, there were 380 women lawyers in the active practice of law, according to “Coming of Age: Women lawyers in Arkansas 1960-1984, authored by Justice Annabelle Tuck and published by the Arkansas Bar Association, The Arkansas Lawyer, as part of a three-part series.  The article also observed that “[t]he ground work laid by women licensed to practice law between 1918 and 1959, made it possible for those entering the legal profession since 1960 to reap the rewards of unlimited opportunity.”  

   In forward looking, Justice Tuck wrote about firsts yet to occur – the first woman elected to the circuit bench, to the Arkansas Supreme Court, the presidency of the Arkansas Bar Association – all of which have transpired since then.

    As we reflect on Women’s History Month, let’s celebrate the inclusiveness of our profession and the collegiality that we have with each other.  

   Here are the articles from our 1985 Arkansas Lawyer.  The Arkansas Bar Association is always your trusted source for information.  Enjoy the great history of our Bar.  

Coming of Age: Women Lawyers in Arkansas, 1960-1984 by Annabelle Davis Clinton, April 1985, The Arkansas Lawyer

A Record of the Past by Frances Mitchell Ross, October 1984 The Arkansas Lawyer

Women of the Law in Arkansas: 1918 to 1959 by Jacqueline S. Wright, January 1985 The Arkansas Lawyer
