High School Memories of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Sept. 21, 2020
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg‘s impact on America was such that many people felt that they knew her. Some, like our next guest, “did” know her. Indeed, ASU law professor Paul Bender remembers Ruth Bader Ginsburg all the way back to high school.
Bender has a keen recollection of his time with Ginsburg because his journey was very similar to hers. They went to the same high school and later were in the saw law school at Harvard. Who was Ruth Bader Ginsburg?
“She was a Supreme Court Justice for a long time. Before that she was a court of appeals judge, and before that she was a law professor.”
“I think it was after she moved to Columbia. She argued six cases before the Supreme Court involving gender discrimination, and in doing that, she established the current law of gender discrimination.”
