It pays to have friends in the legal profession

The Women’s Bioethics Project has obtained some heavy artillery in the form of pro bono services from the major global law firm Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP. Being a recovering lawyer myself, it warms my heart and give me hope to see a global firm like Milbank lending a hand to the WBP -- I think Lisa Stone JD, Executive Director of the Northwest Women’s Law Center says it best when she explains that people "assume that bioethical issues are largely medical or theological issues rather then legal concerns. But technology has fundamentally altered the formulation of questions balancing rights and responsibilities." We look forward to working with Attorneys Richard Wight, Elizabeth Hardin, and Sally Agel - A deep and hearty thank you to Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP.
