          Professor Scott Dodson assembled an all-star list of contributors for his new book, The Legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, released last month from Cambridge University Press.

          UC Hastings College of the Law will host a panel discussion to celebrate the publication of a new book edited by Professor Scott Dodson. The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place on April 2, 2015 at 3:30 pm in the Alumni Reception Center.

          “It is such a pleasure to be the editor of this book,” says Dodson. “Ginsburg’s influence on the law of gender equality has been profound, of course, but she has made a huge impact in many other areas as well. The essays in this book reflect upon the legacy of this remarkable jurist.”

          Panelists for this event include Professor Herma Hill Kay of UC Berkeley Law, Professor Joan C. Williams of UC Hastings College of the Law, and Professor Lani Guinier of Harvard Law School. Professor Kay wrote the chapter in the book devoted to Ginsburg’s seventeen years as a law professor, before she was appointed to the federal bench. Professor Williams’s chapter is on Ginsburg’s important gender-equality jurisprudence. And Professor Guinier contributed an essay on Ginsburg’s "oral dissents" at the Supreme Court. Each panelist will talk about her contribution to the book, with Professor Scott Dodson moderating the discussion and the Q&A.

          “We are delighted to welcome these distinguished panelists and celebrate Professor Dodson’s achievement,” says Associate Dean for Research Reuel Schiller. “This is what engaged scholarship at UC Hastings is all about.”

          Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a legal icon. In more than fifty years as a lawyer, professor, appellate judge, and associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, Ginsburg has influenced the law and society in real and permanent ways. This book chronicles and evaluates the remarkable achievements Ruth Bader Ginsburg has made over the past half century. Including chapters written by prominent court watchers and leading scholars from law, political science, and history, it offers diverse perspectives on an array of doctrinal areas and on different time periods in Ginsburg's career. Together, these perspectives document the impressive legacy of one of the most important figures in modern law.

          A reception will immediately follow.
