Since Tamar Althouse enrolled in the Indiana University (Maurer) School of Law in 1891, women have played a crucial role in the history and development of the school. Maurer women, both graduates and faculty, have blazed trails as lawyers and educators, judges and politicians, corporate legal officers and start-up tech entrepreneurs. These individuals have helped change the way women are viewed not only in the legal profession, but also in the world at large. This exhibit celebrates the life and work of a few of these influential women.
