It All Started With Our Founding Mothers

Back in 1896, Ellen Spencer Mussey and Emma Gillett created American University Washington College of Law, the first law school in the country founded by women. More than 100 years since its founding, this law school pursues passionately the values of dignity, diversity, and equal rights for all.

Founders’ Celebration 2011 celebrates the vision and principles of our Founding Mothers. It celebrates ideas and innovation. Courage and commitment. Opportunities and conversations that bring together people from all over the world, across all areas of the law. Over the next five months you will feel a distinct energy throughout our campus. We hope that you’ll join us in analyzing, shaping, and diving head first into the important legal issues facing our nation and the world. Together we can Champion What Matters.

In 2010 our law school welcomed more than 6,000 Founders’ Celebration attendees to 59 programs with more than 600 organizations represented including governmental departments, non-governmental organizations, international organizations, U.S. and foreign law schools, law firms, and embassies. Founders’ Celebration 2011 will feature 75 events, seminars, panel discussions, and expert forums covering diverse topics such as international trade, labor rights, military justice reform, domestic violence, privacy issues, climate change, and the global economy. Many events will be co-sponsored by distinguished organizations, as well as offer Continuing Legal Education accreditation for legal professionals. I look forward to welcoming you to our community.
