Marian Mayer Berkett (L ’37)
2013 Hall of Fame Inductee
One of the law school's earliest women students, she graduated first in her class and went on to become the first woman attorney hired by a Louisiana law firm (Deutsch Kerrigan), a leader in the New Orleans bar, and a legendary trial attorney. Ms. Berkett, who celebrates her 100th birthday later this month, will serve as Tulane Law School's graduation speaker this May.
