September 22, 2020 | Media News

Before she came to Moritz in 1995, Professor Deborah Jones Merritt worked with some of the most influential women in American law history.

Upon graduating law school, Professor Merritt clerked for then-Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg in Washington D.C. from 1980-81. One year later, she clerked for Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, also in Washington D.C.

Professor Merritt would go on to co-teach Comparative Constitutional Law at the Capitals of Europe Summer Seminars in Vienna, Austria with both O’Connor and Bader Ginsburg in 1997 and 1998 respectively.

Following the passing of Bader Ginsburg last week, Merritt shared some of her memories and thoughts of her on All Sides with Ann Fisher on WOSU.
