Woman Graduates Number One At Harvard Law With Straight A’s

Lisa Grow, 23, of Sandy, Utah, has become the first person in fifteen years to maintain a straight-A average during her entire stay at Harvard Law School, one of America’s most prestigious law schools. She is also the first woman to graduate number one in her class at the law school. Harvard Law, the oldest law school in the nation, began accepting women in 1950. Today, women compose 40 percent of the school’s 1,646-member student body. Grow served on the school’s law review and plans to work for a judge on the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia. Next year, she plans to clerk for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.
