Justice Ginsburg to receive Radcliffe Medal

1 min read

The award will be given in May on Radcliffe Day

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, will receive this year’s Radcliffe Medal on May 29 during Radcliffe Day, an annual celebration of Radcliffe’s past, present, and future. The Radcliffe Medal is presented annually to an individual who has had a transformative impact on society.

The Radcliffe Day lunch in Radcliffe Yard will feature remarks from retired associate justice David H. Souter ’61, LL.B. ’66, and Kathleen M. Sullivan, J.D. ’81, will engage Ginsburg in an expansive conversation that will explore her work as an advocate and a jurist. Sullivan, a former professor of law at Harvard and Stanford and a former dean of Stanford Law School, is a partner in Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP.

Radcliffe Day is open to the public and draws a crowd of hundreds, with strong representation from Radcliffe College, Radcliffe Institute, and Harvard alumni, as well as University leaders. Registration is required.
