51% #1572: A Conversation With Ruth Bader Ginsburg At UB Law School

Sep 11, 2019

On this week’s 51%, we’ll spend the show with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She talks about her decision to enter law school, cases such as the US v. Virginia (which allowed women into Virginia Military Institute), and more.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was recently in Buffalo, New York, just days after the Supreme Court had confirmed she’d recently undergone radiation treatment for a pancreatic tumor. The Supreme Court statement said the tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. Justice Ginsburg was in Buffalo to receive an honorary degree from the University at Buffalo School of Law. She also sat down with Law School Dean Aviva Abramovsky, and the interview is courtesy of WBFO Radio.
