Cambridge University Press has agreed to publish Professor Dodson’s forthcoming edited book on Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg, which will include contributions from legal scholars and court watchers across the country. 

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one of the nation’s most preeminent jurists. From her early years as a law professor at Rutgers and Columbia, through her groundbreaking work as an appellate lawyer for the ACLU, to her time on the D.C. Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg has affected the law in profound and lasting ways. UC Hastings Professor Scott Dodson has contracted with Cambridge University Press to memorialize her remarkable achievements through the reflections of today’s foremost legal scholars. The book is slated to be published in 2014.

“Justice Ginsburg has had—and continues to have—a tremendous impact on the law,” says Dodson. “It is fitting to have a book dedicated to her impressive accomplishments, and I am honored to serve as the book’s editor.”

Expected contributors and their proposed topics include the following:

Nina Totenberg (National Public Radio) on how Ginsburg’s early interest in gender discrimination shaped her jurisprudence as a judge;

Professor Wendy Williams (Georgetown) on Ginsburg’s years at the ACLU;

Professor Herma Hill Kay (Berkeley) on Ginsburg’s law-professor years;

Professor Susan Deller Ross (Georgetown) on Ginsburg’s legacy on gender discrimination;

Professor Pam Karlan (Stanford) on the connections between autonomy and equality in Ginsburg’s 14th Amendment opinions;

Professor Neil Siegel (Duke) on Ginsburg’s “constitutional vision” through issues as disparate as the Commerce Clause, abortion, and Equal Protection;

Professor Aziz Huq (Chicago) on Ginsburg’s influence on habeas corpus and other public law remedies;

Professor Stephen Cohen (Georgetown) on Ginsburg’s jurisprudence on race discrimination in public schools, from her time as a circuit judge to today;

Professor Lisa Griffin (Duke) on Ginsburg’s legacy on criminal procedure;

Professor Scott Dodson (UC Hastings) on Ginsburg’s influence in the law of federal jurisdiction;

Dean Trevor Morrison (NYU) & Professor Gillian Metzger (Columbia) on Ginsburg’s approach to congressional power;

Professor Paul Berman (George Washington University) on Ginsburg and the interaction of legal systems;

Professor Abbe Gluck (Yale) on Ginsburg’s voice in her opinions;

Professor Lani Guinier (Harvard) on Ginsburg’s oral dissents;

Tom Goldstein (SCOTUSblog) on Ginsburg’s oral-argument style; and

Dahlia Lithwick (Slate Magazine) on the evolving nature of Ginsburg as a firebrand.
