JUSTICE IN THE HOUSE
In September, we were honored to host Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a fireside chat with Former Solicitor General Theodore B. Olson. They covered a wide variety of subjects, including the Justice's legal career advocating for gender equality, her friendship with Justice Antonin Scalia, her reaction to her fame as "The Notorious RBG," and the importance of lawyers giving back to society through pro bono.
