A Discussion with the Authors of Shortlisted: Women in the Shadows of the Supreme Court

The Center for Women in Law will hold a panel discussion with the authors on October 5, 2020 from 4:00-5:15 pm CT.

Shortlisted: Women in the Shadows of the Supreme Court tells the inspirational and previously untold history of the nine women considered–but not selected–for the United States Supreme Court.

“This fascinating book reconstructs a chapter of women’s history that has been hiding in plain sight: the numerous qualified women whose names were floated for the Supreme Court but who never got there. Just as they were overlooked, so have their individual stories been — until now.”

— Linda Greenhouse, New York Times contributing columnist

CLE Certification Available

This event is free and open to the public.
