BRIEFING: The Passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Her Impact and the Future of the Supreme Court

On September 18, 2020, the Supreme Court of the United States ended an era, marked by the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Her 27-year tenure on the Court was notable for its impact on landmark civil rights cases, whether in the majority or in dissent, as well as the embrace of Justice Ginsburg as a pop-culture icon. The vacancy created by her passing less than two months before a presidential election raises numerous questions regarding the future direction of the Court and the adjudication of important and consequential cases. In the near-term, the highly charged politics surrounding the nomination and confirmation process of a successor has the potential to alter public perception of the Court, the law, and even the structure of the Court itself.

Please join us for a 30-minute briefing as Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean of the College of Law at the University of California – Berkeley, provides his insights on the impact of Justice Ginsburg and the future of the Supreme Court.

This 30-minute Briefing will be audio-only and complimentary to NACUA members.
