Lady Law "The Story of Supreme Court Justice Lorna Lockwood"
by Sonja White David
Lady Law is the story of a woman born in 1903 on the southern border of the Arizona Territory, who decided at the age of ten to grow up to be a lawyer and judge like her father, and who, against all odds, did exactly that. This is the story of one woman’s rise to the top of the judicial ladder and breaking the glass ceiling by becoming the first woman justice on the Arizona State Supreme Court.
