Justice Ginsburg Honored

Last Friday the Ohio State Law Journal held a symposium devoted to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  The symposium not only celebrated Ginsburg’s work on the court until now, but it was also an opportunity for her to speak about some issues currently on her mind, such as being the only woman on the court, torture, and the citation of foreign law decisions.  The latter has been quite a bone of contention recently.  Some worry that citing foreign courts gives influence to people outside of our legal system.  Others, like Ginsburg, believe that it makes a good impression on the world stage. What do you think?

Articles on the symposium appear in the New York Times and the Washington Post, among others.  You could also go to the Ohio State Law Journal’s webpage, where you will find videos of the event.
