The Center for Women in Law will host a virtual panel discussion on the legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on February 2, 2021 at 12:00 pm CT.

David Lat, Managing Director, Lateral Link, and Founding Editor, Above the Law will moderate a panel of Justice Ginsburg’s former law clerks. The panel will address Justice Ginsburg’s vision of equality, and how that vision, once groundbreaking, is now accepted in multiple facets of law and society. In addition, the former clerks will discuss how Justice Ginsburg’s mentorship shaped their personal and professional choices, and the ramifications of her leadership on gender parity in the practice of law.
