Faculty Emeriti


Professor Ireland devoted time to improving the function and faculty of California Western—including contributing to an overhaul of the curriculum so that it more effectively combined practical and academic training—but she was happiest in the classroom, where she was a dynamic educator talented enough to teach a variety of subjects. Ireland is a passionate advocate for women in law, having chaired the Legislation Committee of the National Association of Women Lawyers and served as Vice President, Treasurer, and on its Board of Directors, in addition to having chaired the AALS section on women in legal education.
