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.
