JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG*
Annual Stevens Lecture
University of Colorado Law School
September 19, 2012
Melissa Hart: Thank you all so much for being with us
tonight. My name is Melissa Hart, and I am the director of the
Byron R. White Center for the Study of American
Constitutional Law at Colorado Law School. We started the
Stevens Lecture last year as an opportunity to bring a
distinguished member of the judiciary to Colorado to give a
public talk about judging and the state of the judiciary. We're
honored this year to have Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as our
second speaker in the series. Before I turn things over to
Justice Ginsburg and to Dean Phil Weiser, I have a couple of
things I want to say about the White Center.
One of the big focuses of the White Center in the past
couple of years has been to really move the conversation about
the Constitution outside of the academy and more into the
public. We've been doing that through a series of programs, and
on the back of your programs here today, you'll see a list of
some of the events we have coming up this fall. I'd love to see
you at those events. I also want to specifically mention that
this week is the week of Constitution Day. Constitution Day is
September 17tb. We started it last year as a project that sends
law students into high schools to teach a constitutional lesson
plan during the week of Constitution Day. This year it
expanded to include not only law students, but also local
attorneys, both alumni and others who volunteer through the
Colorado Bar Association, and several faculty members, who
chose to volunteer this year. We have eighty students, about
thirty lawyers, and several faculty members. And we have been
* Associate Justice, United States Supreme Court. Justice Ginsburg gave this
address for the Annual John Paul Stevens Lecture, which brings an outstanding
jurist to address the University of Colorado Law School on important judicial
issues. Justice Ginsburg gave this address on September 19, 2012.
