Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

On September 18, 2020, America lost Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. An icon as a litigator and a jurist, she worked daily to promote our shared purpose to effect diversity, equality, and justice under the law. In 2013, we were privileged to have Justice Ginsburg join us to receive the Women’s Bar Association of Maryland’s highest honor — the Rita C. Davidson award. This recognition is given to honor individuals who have contributed to the integrity of the legal profession, advanced the interests of women engaged in the practice of law, promoted legal education, aided in the administration of justice, and advanced the status of women in society and the legal profession. Justice Ginsburg persisted to advance each of these ideals and dedicated herself to the pursuit of equal justice under the law. Today, we think of Justice Ginsburg's family and friends, and are grateful for her inspiration, her unwavering dedication to the law, and for her leadership in fighting discrimination and for those without power.
