The Jurisprudence of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Discussion of Fifteen Years on the U.S. Supreme Court
April 10, 2009 | Saxbe Auditorium
The Ohio State Law Journal is proud to announce its 2009 symposium, “The Jurisprudence of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Discussion of Fifteen Years on the U.S. Supreme Court.” As a litigator, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was known as a pioneer of women’s rights, “the Thurgood Marshall of gender equality law,” according to President Clinton, who nominated her to the Court.
The Symposium, which will feature a number of the country’s foremost legal scholars, will consider Justice Ginsburg’s impact on various substantive areas of law and American jurisprudence, more generally. Topics to be discussed will include constitutional law, civil and criminal procedure, statutory interpretation, and labor and employment law.
Justice Ginsburg herself will join us for a live conversation moderated by Professor Wendy Webster Williams of the Georgetown University Law Center, who is co-author of a forthcoming biography of Ginsburg; and by Professor Deborah Jones Merritt of Moritz College of Law, a former law clerk to Justice Ginsburg.
