About the Author

Angela Johnson

I began this extensive and ongoing research project as a senior at Indiana University South Bend in the spring of 2011. I have since graduated with a B.A. in Political Science and am pursuing my law degree at the University of Notre Dame (I will graduate in 2014). My journey through law school is one I have anticipated since I began working as a legal secretary in 2005. With my law degree, I hope to serve others in ways they cannot help themselves and I believe my journey is directed by a calling. Among my many interests, I am a lifelong animal lover and activist, have studied judicial selection, and enjoy studying women in the legal profession. Though the bulk of my research contained in this blog grew out of an independent study in the spring of 2011, I plan to continue my research and update this site periodically.

  1. I am so glad that I came across your blog. I have enjoyed reading all of your posts and articles. I loved the timeline of women in law, fantastic read. I too feel that my pursuit of a law degree is from a higher calling. I have been in college for three years now, always changing what I wanted to do. I did not feel that any one degree fit who I was. I am a shy, introverted person, so law was at the bottom of the list for me. It was not until last semester that I finally found may calling. After taking an early American history class and learning about the constitution and the founding fathers principles I had a direction to go with my passions. I too have a desire to see animals as well as adults get a chance at a humane and happy life. It is the gross negligence and utter cruelty and domination of both animals and people that drives my passion for justice. Animal abuse and the sex trade are and will be my main focus both domestically and internationally. I read to myself daily the lines that Moses said to God about not being articulate but willing to do what God asked of him, knowing that God would give him the words and courage needed. I am sure you are well into your new journey in law school. I wish you much success and happiness.

  2. Hello Candy,

    Thank you very much for your kind words. It is good to hear from you and I appreciate you taking the time to comment on my blog. I also apologize for my delay in replying – law school does not leave much free time. I have additional articles that I hope to read and post soon, time permitting.

    Best of luck to you on your journey!

  3. Excellent compilation of articles. Hope you’re enjoying law school. Given your career goals, I suspect you’ll encounter somewhat less sexism that in BigLaw.

    Best wishes,
