While recovering, she vows to study law, although The United State Supreme Court has just declared that women are too timid and delicate to be lawyers.Susannah's fiancÉ accepts her victim status and the child conceived during her sexual assault. However, he expects his wife be a beautiful object, not opposing counsel at the dinner table.Susannah begins to study law at a firm in Chicago as she struggles unsuccessfully to combine her career with an engagement to a man who will not allow her to become an attorney. She meets Ted Nelson, a young lawyer who acts as her coach and mentor, applauds her ambition, and wants her to have what she wants. She passes the bar and is hired by the firm where she interned.Susannah's handling of her cases brings her immediate success. She defends a battered wife who accidentally kills her husband, a young immigrant that the State's Attorney is harassing, and an accomplice in a big bank robbery.
