Salute To Women in the Legal Profession
Our Nation's First Female Lawyer

As with many professions, law began life as the sole domain of men - and even then, only whites in regions overrun with imperialists and imperialism. But pioneers of different backgrounds have put themselves out there to challenge this professional hegemony, proving that they have plenty to offer the legal world and for that we can give thanks and respect to our featured female pioneer in the first of our 10 part salute to women in the legal profession.

KistemakerBusinessLawGroupDaytonaBeachArabella Mansfield was a woman ahead of her time living in a forward-thinking state. She was the nation's first female lawyer. She was allowed to take the bar exam and passed with high scores, despite a state law restricting applicants to white males over 21. Shortly after Mansfield passed the exam, Iowa amended its bar licensing statute and became the first state to allow women and minorities into its bar. Mansfield was also active in the women's suffrage movement and worked with Susan B. Anthony. Dying in 1911 in Aurora, Illinois, Mansfield did not live to see the movement's ultimate achievement, passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1920.
Contracts 101

What Is a Contract?
A contract is a legally enforceable agreement between two parties. Each party to a contract makes a promise to either perform a certain duty or pay a certain amount. If one party fails to act as promised, and the other party has fulfilled the duties under the contract, the other party is entitled to legal relief.

Oral vs. Written Contracts
Generally, both written and oral (spoken) contracts are legally enforceable. It is always best to write down the terms of the contract in case there is some dispute between the parties after the contract is formed. If the contract is oral, the parties to the contract may later remember different details about the contract terms, or forget certain terms entirely.

What Is a Breach of Contract?
A breach of contract is a failure to fulfill the duties under the contract terms. A contract can be breached in the following ways:
One party does not perform as he or she promised
One party does something that makes it impossible for the other party to perform the duties under the contract
One party makes it clear that he or she does not intend to perform the contract duties

What is the time limit for filing a Breach of Contract lawsuit?
Every state has a certain time limit, called a statute of limitations, in which a lawsuit must be filed after a breach of contract. If a party wants a remedy for a breach, and they do not file within this time limit, that party cannot file a lawsuit. The amount of time for filing a breach of contract lawsuit varies by state.

Why should I consult with an attorney?
Contract law can be quite complicated. Additionally, every state has different lawsuit filing procedures and deadlines for breach of contract claims. Speaking with Kistemaker Law about your issue can help you make a clearer decision. We can help identify what is a breach of contract and collect all the proper documents to prove a breach. Further, we can help you negotiate the terms of a contract before you make or accept an offer.
