An Ames Moot Court Tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg ’56-’58

Harvard Law School published this video item, entitled “An Ames Moot Court Tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg ’56-’58” – below is their description.

In the history of Ames, eight teams of advocates have had the unique privilege of making arguments before the iconic Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ’56-’58. She first presided over the Ames Competition in 1982 while she was serving as a judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. During her time as a Supreme Court justice, she returned to Harvard to oversee the finals three more times, in 1994, 2004, and 2013. After Justice Ginsburg’s passing on Sept. 18, 2020, several Harvard Law School Ames alumni reflected on the experience of arguing before one of the most influential advocates in American history.
