The second woman appointed to serve on the United States Supreme Court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has had a profound impact on society as a highly accomplished academic and scholar, a renowned jurist, and an influential advocate for gender equality and women’s rights. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter appointed Justice Ginsburg to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Thirteen years later, President Bill Clinton announced his nomination of Ginsburg as an Associate Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court and she took her seat on August 10, 1993.
This event will feature remarks by Justice Ginsburg and an onstage discussion with School of Law Dean Aviva Abramovsky.
During this very special occasion, Justice Ginsburg will be awarded a SUNY Honorary Degree in recognition of her distinguished service to the nation’s highest court and her profound impact on society.
