Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her husband, Marty Ginsburg, modeled a true partnership in pursuit of gender equity. Their commitment to equal justice pervaded their personal and professional lives and will have a lasting impact on the legal profession and our society. To honor their legacy, the Center for Women in Law at the University of Texas School of Law is proud to announce the Ginsburg Initiative, which will advance gender-neutral initiatives that support systemic change, such as best practices surrounding work assignments, performance expectations, parental leave, and transparency in career development.
On Tuesday, February 2, to mark the launch of the Ginsburg Initiative, the Center will host a virtual panel discussion on the life and legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which Lateral Link is proud to sponsor. The panel discussion will be moderated by Nina Totenberg — NPR’s celebrated legal affairs correspondent, as well as a longtime friend of Justice Ginsburg — and will feature four former RBG clerks:
The event is free and open to the public, and it has been approved for 1.25 hours of CLE credit (in Texas and reciprocal jurisdictions). Please register here for what will surely be a fascinating discussion about one of the most important and groundbreaking figures in American history.
Meanwhile, here at Lateral Link we have been working on the development of a new podcast focused on the Biglaw lateral market, entitled “Movers, Shakers, and Rainmakers.” Each week, my colleague Zach Sandberg and I will dissect some of the most significant recent lateral partner moves, discuss important trends in the legal market, and provide you with the news you need to know about the ever-changing ecosystem of the world’s largest law firms. If you have suggestions for topics or guests for the podcast, please reach out to me or to Zach.
We look forward to hearing from you, and we look forward to seeing you on February 2!
