May 2015

In honor of Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s visit to campus, this issue celebrates Bryn Mawr Law: we profile just some of the many Mawrters working in the criminal justice system and at “Biglaw” firms, talk with two alumnae taking on one of the most challenging policy issues of our time, and collect our very own Bryn Mawr Law Library.

On the Cover: Students enrolled in the Coasts in Transition 360° took a deep dive into the waters off Belize over spring break. Read the full story and visit the online gallery.
