130 years ago, Carrie Burnham Kilgore completed her law school studies and graduated as a member of Penn Law’s Class of 1883, establishing herself as our first alumna and one of the first female law graduates in the country.

Her quests to formally study law, to gain admission to practice, and to earn the trust and respect clients and peers demonstrated tenacity, intelligence, and a passion for the profession.  She opened the doors for generations of Penn Law women to do the same, and this panel highlights the career paths and lives of a handful of our many distinguished alumnae over the years who have continued in this spirit.
