Description: 

Mary Hartnett, one of Justice Ginsburg's authorized biographers and co-author with Justice Ginsburg and Wendy W. Williams of My Own Words, will share anecdotes about the Justice's life and discuss the ways in which her humanity, intellect, and tenacity have helped shape the legal landscape of modern-day America. Dan Norland, who helped Lakhdar Boumediene and Mustafa Ait Idir share their story in Witnesses of the Unseen: Seven Years in Guantanamo, will talk about these men, their perseverance surviving brutal conditions for the years it took to win the landmark Supreme Court case Boumediene v. Bush and establish their innocence, and their remarkable kindness and good nature despite everything they've been through. Hartnett is an adjunct professor at Georgetown Law and an advisory board member of the Women's Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program. Norland is a high school History and Government teacher at La Jolla Country Day School and a former attorney at WilmerHale, which represented the petitioners in Boumediene v. Bush. This event costs $25 and includes lunch.
