Go On! Women Judges Around the World Remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Please join the Women and the Law Program of American University Washington College of Law, the International Association of Women Judges, and the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, in the framework of THE STATE OF WOMEN:  Erasmus+ Network funded by the European Union on October 1, 2020 at 9:30am EST, for an event on the legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Throughout her long career Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg inspired and engaged with jurists, lawyers, scholars, and students worldwide.  A committed comparativist, she was always eager to learn from the experiences of other nations, “as a matter of comity and in a spirit of humility.”  Her personal story and unwavering commitment to gender equality served as a call for women to enter the legal profession and demand their place in the judiciary in every corner of the world.  

Please join for a conversation with the Rt Hon. the Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE (Former President, Supreme Court of the United Kingdom); Hon. Justice Hannah Okwengu (Court of Appeal of Kenya), Hon. Judge Alexandra Prechal (Court of Justice for the European Union) and Hon. Judge Flavia Viana (Court of Justice of the State of Paraná, Brazil) as we reflect upon the indelible mark Justice Ginsburg leaves at home and abroad.

“If U.S. experience and decisions may be instructive to systems that have more recently instituted or invigorated judicial review for constitutionality, so too can we learn from others now engaged in measuring ordinary laws and executive actions against fundamental instruments of government and charters securing basic rights.” —Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Co-sponsored by the Washington College of Law’s International and Comparative Legal Studies Program, Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, and Academy on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law.
