we’re excited to announce support from our friends at harvard law school. kate reilly, vice president of the women’s law association at HLS, has joined our national board of advisers. she’s also passed along an endorsement from W.L.A.:

“law students are in a powerful position to positively influence the legal profession by making educated choices early in their careers about the kinds of law firms for which they want to work. too often, students don’t have the information to really evaluate what a firm prioritizes in hiring and retaining lawyers. this program has the potential to remedy that problem and to give law students the tools to begin their careers in environments where they will be welcome and encouraged while getting to do important, challenging work.”

kate has written prolifically on women’s issues — see here and here — and we’re glad to have her on board. it’s further proof that our national grassroots movement is growing by the day.
