Honors Associate Justice of Supreme Court of the United States for career committed to individual rights, especially women, and international law
(Chicago, IL) Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg of the Supreme Court
of the Untied States will receive the American Bar Association Medal,
the highest honor conferred by the association, Aug. 9 in San Francisco,
during the 2010 ABA Annual Meeting.
“Justice Ginsburg has shown a steadfast commitment to preserving and
advancing individual rights that is ever-more crucial in our modern
world, where issues of security, technological advances, global business
and personal relationships, and world governance issues all have the
potential to impinge on personal liberties. Our nation’s founders
carefully crafted a balance in establishing our system of governance.
Throughout the history of our country, generations have been challenged
to protect that balance. Justice Ginsburg is one of today’s champions of
that balance, and of protecting our constitutional form of government.
Justice Ginsburg has demonstrated her brilliance, keen legal analytical
ability and elegance on the Court, contributing significantly to the
development of our country's jurisprudence. The ABA is honored to
recognize her immense contribution to the rule of law, both in the
United States and on the world stage,” said ABA President Carolyn B.
Lamm in announcing the selection.
