Women Trailblazers in the Law: Margaret Brinig and Nell Jessup Newton

Margaret Brinig, who retired from Notre Dame Law School in 2019 as the Fritz Duda Family Chair in Law, and Nell Jessup Newton, who served as the Law School’s Joseph A. Matson Dean and Professor of Law from 2009 to 2019, talk about their lives and legal careers.

This video was produced for the American Bar Association’s Women Trailblazers in the Law Project, which captures the oral histories of women pioneers in the legal profession nationwide. The project’s website, launched by Stanford Law School’s Robert Crown Law Library, is https://abawtp.law.stanford.edu.
