with MSNBC’s Melissa Murray
Tuesday, March 23, 2021
Watch the conversation here:
Just a few weeks before she died, with what would be her final publication, United States Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and her former law clerk, now Berkeley Law Professor Amanda Tyler, submitted their manuscript of their collaborative book to University of California Press. The result is Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue. Justice, Justice includes some of Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s legal arguments she wrote as an attorney fighting for gender equality; her four favorite opinions she wrote as a Justice to the Supreme Court; and plenty of Justice Ginsberg’s commentary about her life and marriage to Marty Ginsberg, much of that previously unpublished. (She also includes valuable marriage advice which she received from her mother-in-law.) For those of you who are not attorneys, fear not: you will appreciate Justice Ginsberg’s no-nonsense legal arguments and opinions– they’re free of legalese, and are so powerful in their logic and directness. Amanda Tyler knows how to engage a willing witness: part of the book includes a lengthy interview/discussion with the Justice about her professional evolution, her dedication to pursuing not only gender equality, but all forms of social justice.
In conversation with Melissa Murray. Melissa Murray appears frequently on MSNBC as a legal scholar. She holds an endowed chair at NYU’s School of Law, and served as interim Dean of the UC Berkeley School of Law.
