In addition to its core mission of increasing the representation of women in the legal profession in the United States, Ms. JD aims to support the rise of women lawyers worldwide. Ms. JD’s Global Education Fund was created to support women in developing countries to pursue legal educations who would otherwise lack access to higher education. This year the Fund enabled two young Ugandan women, Joaninne Nanyange and Monica Athieno, to pursue their dreams of becoming lawyers by attending the law program at Makerere University in Uganda. Read more about Jonaninne and Monica here http://ms-jd.org/gef.

Ms. JD is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to the success of women in law school and the legal profession. Ms. JD’s online community provides a forum for dialogue and networking among women lawyers and law students. With campus chapters throughout the nation, Ms. JD is also home to the National Women Law Students’ Organization (NWLSO).
