Lemma Barkaloo (1840–1870, aka Lemma Barkeloo) was the first woman in America to attend law school. She began attending Washington University in 1869, after having been refused admission to the Law School at Columbia. However, she never finished her course work or graduated. In 1870 she was admitted to the Missouri bar and became the first woman to try a case in an American court; she died a few months later from typhoid fever.
