The New York State Task Force on Women in Courts was created in 1984 to eliminate gender bias in judicial decision making and in the courts of New York. Pace Professor Jay C. Carlisle was a member of the Task Force.

Abstract

Beginning in 1980, the National Judicial Education Program to Promote Equality for Women was established by the National Organization for Women's Legal Defense and Education Fund. Beginning in New Jersey, a number of states created task forces to examine the state courts and to eliminate gender bias in judicial decision-making and in the courtroom. New York's Task Force on Women and the Courts began operations in February 1984, and Prof. Jay C. Carlisle was named a member. The document collection at Pace is from Prof. Carlisle's own files on the Task Force.
