          Professor Scott Dodson is featured in a new podcast about his upcoming book, The Legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

          The podcast series, entitled The RightsCast, is produced by Professor Nancy Leong of University of Denver Sturm College of Law. The RightsCast features timely and important research relating to civil rights. In each episode, Professor Leong interviews a different professor about his or her recent work. A new episode of The RightsCast is released every Wednesday.

          In his book, available from Cambridge University Press on Feb. 1, Dodson discussed at length the important role Justice Ginsburg has played in the evolution of civil rights during her illustrious and long career, beginning with her tenure as a law professor and advocacy for the ACLU; continuing through her time on the bench with the DC Circuit Court of Appeals; and through today, as the second female justice appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States.

          Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a legal icon. In more than fifty years as a lawyer, professor, appellate judge, and associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, Ginsburg has influenced the law and society in real and permanent ways. Her impact on the law cannot be overstated. Yet no book on Ginsburg’s legacy exists. This book fills that gaping void.

          The Legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg chronicles and evaluates the remarkable achievements Ginsburg has made over the past half century. Including chapters written by prominent court watchers and leading scholars from law, political science, and history, it offers diverse perspectives on an array of doctrinal areas and on different time periods in Ginsburg’s career. Together, these perspectives document the impressive – and continuing – legacy of one of the most important figures in modern law.
