In 1923, UNB formally affiliated itself with the Saint John Law School. Margaret Hanington Teed, the daughter of Mariner G. Teed, a lecturer at the Law School and Chancellor of the Anglican Diocese of Fredericton, was the first woman to enroll and graduate from the new school. Margaret's graduation notice in The Brunswickan reads:

"Margaret was stately. Tall and fair and with queenly bearing she well typified womanhood in the midst of manhood, herself the only representative in the class... She took a business course at Miss Johnson's Business College, at St. John (sic), and then entered the Law School. She expects to practise her profession in St. John (sic)."
