This week’s in 1879: Belva Ann Lockwood became the first female lawyer heard by the Supreme Court. In 1870 she applied to the Columbian Law School in the District of Columbia. The trustees refused to admit her, fearing she would distract the male students. She and several other women were finally admitted to the new National University (now the George Washington University). Although she completed her coursework in May 1873, the law school refused to grant her a diploma because of her gender. Without a diploma, Lockwood could not gain admittance to the District of Columbia Bar. After a year, she wrote a letter to the President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant, appealing to him and asking him for justice. In September 1873, within a week of having sent the letter, Lockwood received her diploma.
