The judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her husband Marty Ginsburg have modeled a real partnership in the pursuit of gender equality. Her commitment to equal justice has shaped her personal and professional life and will have a lasting impact on the legal profession and our society. To honor her 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: B. Best practices related to work assignments, performance expectations, parental leave and transparency in career development.
On Tuesday, February 2nd, to mark the start of the Ginsburg initiative, a virtual panel discussion on the life and legacy of the judiciary, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, will be held, which Lateral Link is proud to sponsor. The panel discussion will be moderated by Nina Totenberg – NPR’s celebrated correspondent for legal affairs and long-time friend of Justice Ginsburg – and with four former RBG employees:
The event is free and open to the public. She was approved for 1.25 hours of CLE credit (in Texas and in mutual jurisdictions). Please register here for a fascinating discussion about one of the most important and groundbreaking figures in American history.
In the meantime, here at Lateral Link, we’ve been working on developing a new podcast called Movers, Shakers, and Rainmakers, which will focus on the biglaw side market. Each week, my colleague Zach Sandberg and I will be analyzing some of the key side-partner moves of recent times, discussing key trends in the legal market, and giving you the news you need to know about the ever-changing ecosystem of the world’s largest law firms.
