U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in Conversation with President Biddy Martin.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will join Amherst College President Biddy Martin for an onstage conversation in Johnson Chapel on Thursday, October 3 at 5 p.m. This is a ticketed event open to Amherst College students, faculty and staff.
The second woman ever appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court, and the first Jewish justice since 1969, Justice Ginsburg is well known for her clear voice in support of the constitutional rights of all members of our society. Her early career as a pathbreaking lawyer in defense of fundamental rights, as well as her nearly forty years as an appellate judge and Supreme Court Justice, have been well-documented in many media, including opera, late-night television, and two feature-length films.
This free event is open to Amherst College students, faculty and staff. Due to limited seating capacity, no public or guest tickets will be available. Ticket registration links will be live on this web page beginning at 8 a.m. on Thursday, September 19, 2019 and will be limited to one ticket per person.
