PJ JDK adds Philanthropy to her accomplishments

Who was the first UCLA School of Law grad appointed to the bench? Who was the first female presiding justice in California? Who is the most senior appellate justice in the State?

Today UCLA announced that PJ Klein and her husband have given the school $1.025 million to establish the Justice Joan Dempsey Klein Scholarships in Law to provide support to students with financial need who have also demonstrated excellence in academics, leadership and commitment to advocating for gender equality or promoting the advancement of women in law and society.
