Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg talked about her early days as a law clerk, her advice to law students, and her judicial philosophy. Topics included continuing importance of the Equal Protection Clause (enacted in 1868), a recent conversation with Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor about judicial fashion, the effect of the decision-making process on the court’s ultimate opinions, the importance of oral argument, and the controversy over citing opinions of international courts in Supreme Court decisions.
