Willamette University mourns passing of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Marketing & Communications

Willamette University joins the nation in mourning the death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 87, on Friday.  

A groundbreaking lawyer, cultural icon and pioneer for women’s rights, Ginsburg’s relentless work as the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court moved mountains for feminist causes and gender equality, and her powerful opinions earned her the nickname “Notorious R.B.G.” later in life. 

In 2008, on the College of Law’s 125th anniversary, Ginsburg received an honorary degree and delivered the fall Atkinson Lecture, the university’s premiere speaker series. 

Ginsburg’s numerous roles outside of the court included serving as a professor at Rutgers Law School and Columbia Law School, general counsel of the ACLU and on its national board of directors. Nominated by President Bill Clinton, Ginsburg was seated as an associate justice of the Supreme Court on Aug. 10, 1993.
