Justice Ginsburg to visit Notre Dame next month

August 30, 2016

United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is coming to the Notre Dame Law School next month, where she will talk with law students and speak at a public event.

A release from the school says Ginsburg will hold a conversation with students on a variety of issues, which will be moderated by Jennifer Mason McAward, associate professor of law and director of the Center for Civil and Human Rights.

Ginsburg will also hold an event with the University of Notre Dame community Sept. 12 at the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. She will engage in a dialogue about various issues with 7th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Ann Claire Williams, a Notre Dame alumna and trustee.

Ginsburg was nominated to the Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton and joined the Supreme Court in 1993. She worked as a law clerk and in academia after earning her law degree from Columbia Law School in 1959. President Jimmy Carter appointed her to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in 1980.

Tickets for the Sept. 12 event are available at www.nd.edu/ginsburg or by contacting the Murnane Family Ticket Office at Purcell Pavilion at 574-631-7356.
