Professor Marie Failinger is one of the coordinators for the Women in Legal Education Oral History Project, an effort to record and preserve the stories and knowledge of the pioneering women of legal education.
Launched in 2014, the project has already produced more than 40 video interviews. Law.com recently published a story outlining the project that describes the urgency in collecting the stories of the first women to serve as law school faculty in the country.
Failinger told law.com that the effort, which is being supported by the Association of American Law Schools, is a “broad-tent project.”
“We do try to get the women who have been important historical figures because they have been deans, or important figures in feminist jurisprudence,” she said. “But we’ve been trying to get interviews with women who have all different kinds of career paths.”
