The Indiana Supreme Court Lecture, “Anatomy of Freedom: John Adams on a Global Scale,” will feature as speaker the first female chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. The lecture begins at 5 p.m. March 25 at the Wynne Courtroom at Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis.
Margaret H. Marshall was appointed chief justice of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts in 1999. Originally from South Africa, she came to the U.S. to pursue her master’s degree at Harvard University. Because of her activities opposing apartheid in South Africa, she was unable to return to her native country.
She later earned her J.D. at Yale Law School in 1976 and practiced law in Boston for 16 years; she became a U.S. citizen in 1978.
Chief Justice Marshall serves on the boards of the Conferences of Chief Justices and the National Center for State Courts. She was a trustee for The Africa Fund, a member of the board of Africa News, and serves as trustee of Southern Africa Legal Services Foundation.
