The Birnbaum Women’s Leadership Network at NYU Law, the NYU Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation and the John Brademas Center hosted a book talk on the upcoming book, Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue: A Life’s Work Fighting for a More Perfect Union by Amanda L. Tyler and the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. NYU Law Dean Trevor Morrison acted as interlocutor for this event.
This event was free and open to the public, but registration via Zoom was required.
Amanda L. Tyler is the Shannon Cecil Turner Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law. Professor Tyler’s research and teaching interests include the Supreme Court, federal courts, constitutional law, legal history, civil procedure, and statutory interpretation. She is the co-author, with the Honorable Ruth Bader Ginsburg, of Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue: A Life’s Work Fighting for a More Perfect Union, which the University of California Press will publish in early 2021. The book is an outgrowth of Justice Ginsburg’s 2019 visit to Berkeley Law when she and Tyler sat down for a conversation about Justice Ginsburg’s life.
