University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law - Summer 2014

In years past it was not unusual to find a young man following in dad’s footsteps as a Pacific McGeorge graduate. And in recent years, a wave of bright young women has swept through campus, earning law degrees to enter their dads’ chosen profession. Four decades ago, women comprised only 9 percent of the law school’s student body. That percentage grew steadily, touching the 50 percent plateau in 2001 before settling at 47 percent at McGeorge and other ABA law schools. Here are three young women who, guided by their fathers’ successes, have launched careers along similar paths. McGeorge welcomes these new legacies to its 13,000-member alumni network and the greater University of the Pacific network. Just as the law school’s female pioneers of the 1970s excelled in the courtroom, on the bench and in public service, these young graduates are driven to succeed. Meet three young alumnae who have chosen to follow in their distinguished dads’ footsteps Like Father, By Mike Curran Like Daughter 30 SUMMER 20 14
