Reflections on Working with Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sandra Day O’Connor, and SCOTUS

September 15, 2020 | Events

On Sept. 28, from 7-8 p.m., Prof. Deborah Jones Merritt will share reflections from her time working with Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sandra Day O’Connor, and the Supreme Court of the United States. Prof. Merritt is a Distinguished University Professor, as well as the John Deaver Drinko-Baker & Hostetler Chair in Law.

Professor Merritt clerked for Judge (now Justice) Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and for Justice Sandra Day O’Connor on the Supreme Court of the United States.

Professor Merritt has published widely on issues of equality, affirmative action, federalism, health and technology, legal education, tort reform, and law and social science. Much of her work has focused on public policy issues, and she has made numerous presentations to judges, legislators, and other policymakers. In 2009, the United States Supreme Court invited her to defend the lower-court judgment in Reed Elsevier v. Muchnick, a prominent copyright class action. Professor Merritt also has co-taught courses in Europe with both Justice Ginsburg and Justice O’Connor.
