Roaring Through the Ages with Judge Carol Ball.  Old North Foundation Speaker Series features Roaring through the Ages: The Emancipation of Women in the Law, 1976-2016 with speaker Carol Ball. Educated during the flowering of the women’s liberation movement, Carol Ball entered law school at a time when only 20% of law school enrollees were women. By the time she graduated, Carol’s career exploded by riding the wave of the nation’s growing interest in promoting women in the field. More information.
