Loretta Lynch to co-panel “Black Women Leading in the Law”

Former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch will serve as a co-panelist at “Black Women Leading in the Law: A Tribute to Jean Camper Cahn,” which will take place at the University of the District of Columbia’s Student Center, in Heritage Hall, on March 21.

President Barack Obama appointed Lynch the first Black female U.S. Attorney General, and she served in that capacity from 2015-2017. Lynch presently works as a partner in the New York office of the Paul Weiss law firm.

Held during Women’s History Month, the event pays homage to Jean Camper Cahn, the co-founder of UDC Law’s predecessor school and the first Black woman to establish a law school. UDC Law Dean Twinette L. Johnson will serve with Lynch on the panel. 

There will be a pre-reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by the program at 7:30 p.m. and a dessert reception at 8:30 p.m.
