07.21.14 —  Professor Martha Davis, S. Mayumi Grigsby '15 and five grads will be honored as trailblazers and role models by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly at an event on October 23. 

The group of honorees was selected by a panel comprised of members of the community and representatives from Lawyers Weekly’s editorial department. The women’s accomplishments are varied. Some have spent years in the nonprofit sector, ensuring that underrepresented populations receive the legal help they need. Others have been instrumental in drafting and implementing legislative or regulatory reform. Still others shoulder significant pro bono or mentoring commitments in addition to their other responsibilities.

All have made significant contributions to our profession and are role models for young women entering the law.
