From Times Staff and Wire Reports

For the first time in the history of Harvard Law School, a woman is graduating at the head of the class. Lisa Grow, 23, of Sandy, Utah, is also the first student in 15 years to maintain a straight-A average for all three years. She graduates today. The 180-year-old law school opened its doors to women in 1950. Its current 1,646-member student body is 40% female. Grow will clerk for a judge on the U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia. The following year, she plans to work for Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy. She said she would like to work in government and ultimately hopes to teach law.
