AT ITS 3RD ANNUAL DINNER, the Penn Law Feminist Working Group presented its “Feminist of the Year Award” to Lynn Hecht Schafran, an attorney for the National Organization for Women who has developed educational programs to combat gender bias in courts, in practice, and in the teaching of law.

Schafran, director of the National Judicial Education Program (NJEP) since 1981, has designed curricula for law schools, judicial colleges, and state bar associations. NJEP is a cooperative project of NOW Legal Defense Fund and the National Association of Women Judges. Schafran served on the first state supreme court task force to examine gender bias in the courts.

NJEP and Penn Law’s Public Service Program published Gender, Justice and the Law, Asylum to Zygotes, in March. The book examines gender bias in the courts, in the legal profession, and in the legal curriculum.

After Schafran received the award, Emily Martin gave the keynote address. Martin is staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union Women’s Law Project.
