Janet Mary Riley: A Voice for Social Justice in Louisiana

Janet Mary Riley, Loyola alum and first female law professor in New Orleans, remained dedicated throughout her career to protecting the rights of the disenfranchised in Louisiana. Our newest exhibit highlighting Riley’s papers will guide you through the life and career of this pioneering woman of civil and women’s rights. Letters, publications, awards, and legal achievements are brought to life through Ms. Riley’s own words. We are honored to host this exhibit in association with the NOLA4Women series, “Women of New Orleans: Builders and Rebuilders” through the Spring of 2018.
