The first woman to study law at Oxford, Cornelia Sorabji (1866–1954) was among the early Indian women to practice at the Calcutta High Court. Appointed to a senior office under the British Indian government, Sorabji championed the cause of opening up the legal profession to women much before they were formally allowed to plead before the courts of law. Using rich and hitherto unused data and supported by insightful analysis, this detailed biography will appeal to students and teachers of gender and cultural studies and South Asian history, as well as general readers.
