Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg moderated by Nina Totenberg, NPR News

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was nominated by President Clinton as associate justice of the United States Supreme Court in June 1993, and took the oath of office in August 1993. Prior to her appointment, she served on the bench of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. She was a professor of law at Columbia University and earlier served on the law faculty at Rutgers. She has also taught at many other law schools in the U.S. and abroad. Ginsburg holds a BA from Cornell University, and received her JD from Columbia Law School. In 1971, she was instrumental in launching the Women's Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union. Throughout the '70s, she litigated a series of cases solidifying a constitutional principle against genderbased discrimination. Ginsburg has written widely in the areas of civil procedure, conflict of laws, constitutional law, and comparative law.
