Reflections on RBG: Life, Legacy, and Lessons

Held each year on Justice Ginsburg’s birth anniversary, March 15, the RBG Lecture honors her impact on the law and our society, and we learn more about her from people who were close to her.

There will also be a drawing to win one of five prerelease copies of The Legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg (2nd edition, Cambridge University Press). The copies will be autographed by editor Scott Dodson. You must register and be present at the end of the lecture to win.

This year’s lecturer will be Hon. Goodwin Liu, an associate justice of the California Supreme Court who clerked for her during the Supreme Court’s October 2000 term. The title of his lecture is: “Reflections on RBG: Life, Legacy, and Lessons.”

The son of Taiwanese immigrants, Justice Liu grew up in Sacramento, where he attended public schools. He went to Stanford University and earned a bachelor’s degree in biology in 1991 and graduated from Yale Law School in 1998.

Nominated by Governor Jerry Brown, Justice Liu was unanimously confirmed by the Commission on Judicial Appointments and sworn into office in 2011. He was retained by the electorate in 2014.

Before joining the state’s highest court, he was a professor of law and associate dean at the UC Berkeley School of Law. He continues to teach constitutional law as a visiting professor at Harvard Law School.

He has served on many boards, committees and commissions, including the governing boards of the American Constitution Society, the National Women’s Law Center and the Public Welfare Foundation. He is considered an expert and an advocate for diversity in the legal profession. When Justice Liu was nominated to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, members of the Women’s Law Center sent more than 13,000 emails in support of his appointment.
