Abstract: From the video archives of the Cornell Law School Heritage Project. The interviewer is Peter W. Martin; the videographer, Jaesuk Yoo. This video covers Bea Frank's experiences as a law student, one of few women at the Cornell Law School in the early 1950s, the path that led her to work on issues of consumer protection and clinical law teaching at NYU. (Duration 57:28) The initial phase of this project was sponsored by a generous grant from the law firm of Sutherland Asbill and Brennan LLP.
