Justice Ginsburg Delivers Inaugural Herma Hill Kay Memorial Lecture
U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg delivered the inaugural Herma Hill Kay Memorial Lecture on Oct. 21 at UC Berkeley School of Law.
Justice Ginsburg spoke in conversation with her former clerk, and Berkeley Law professor, Amanda Tyler and shared many reflections on her career and lifelong friendship with former Berkeley Law Dean Herma Hill Kay, for whom the lecture is named. Professor Kay passed away in 2017 and left behind a tremendous legacy. She is remembered not just for her contributions to Berkeley Law but for her tireless efforts to ensure justice and fair representation of women in the legal community.
The lecture series was made possible largely through a contribution from Berkeley Law Professor Pamela Samuelson. Professor Samuelson presented a slideshow featuring photos of Dean Kay and praised her for improving the law school’s faculty diversity, clinical program, and social justice programming saying, “I’m only one of many thousands of women in particular who were inspired by her and mentored by her.”
