In an intimate conversation, Associate Justice, U.S. Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg discusses the challenges and key moments of her accomplished career—from her central role in and strategy for gender discrimination law suits to her tenure as one of the few female Justices to serve on the nation’s highest court. Justice Ginsburg also offers personal insight into the culture of the current Court and shares her thoughts on the difference between being an advocate and a judge.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was nominated as an Associate Justice, U.S. Supreme Court, by President Bill Clinton and took her seat on August 10, 1993. Abbe R. Gluck (moderator) is a professor of law at Yale Law School, where she specializes in fields of Congress, federalism, and healthcare. She clerked for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the 2003 Supreme Court Term.
