There are 4 comments on LAW’s Jay Wexler on “the Honor and Joy” of Clerking for RBG

  1. What an absolutely beautiful and brilliant tribute to a brilliant and beloved Justice and hero(ine). I would love to hear more of your RBG stories. And, what an honor it is to be the almuna of a law school that boasts at least two (that I know of) former Ginsburg law clerks. I had the pleasure of taking a seminar with Prof. Hugh Baxter on Supreme Court decisionmaking during my third year at BUSL (the year you clerked for her, in fact). Current 9th Circuit Judge John Owens, also a former clerk, is a family friend. I wish I could have met and known Justice Ginsburg myself. What a woman!

  2. Prof. Wexler – Thank you for personal view of Justice Ginsburg. What a great experience to have a year clerking for her. Although I met her only a few times, my impression of her as a strong, courageous, brilliant and kind person is the same. One of the judges in DC for whom I clerked, Oscar Davis, was also an opera fan and was often Justice (then-Judge) Ginsburg’s companion to the opera in the 1980s.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing these lovely and heartfelt memories. As a former student in your First Amendment class, I remember you relating the Aguilar/Aguillard story. She clearly lives on in many people’s memories.
