Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the impact of legal education on women’s access to the judiciary, connecting the Western and Muslim worlds. Exploring the period lasting from the early twentieth until the early twenty-first century, it examines female students’ entrance to legal education in Egypt, Indonesia, and the Netherlands to see whether women’s increasing entrance to Law Schools leads to equally growing numbers of women judges. However, it finds that legal education alone is not sufficient in promoting women’s access to the judiciary. Other factors, such as a shortage of judges after independence from colonialization, the judicial rotation system, and the possibility of part-time employment need to be taken into account as well.
