Ginsburgs Receive Marshall-Wythe Medallions
In February, the Law School community honored an extraordinary couple—U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her husband, Georgetown Law Professor Martin Ginsburg—by awarding each the Marshall-Wythe Medallion. Justice Ginsburg, a former federal appeals court judge, is especially well-known for her advocacy on behalf of women's rights. Martin Ginsburg is a nationally recognized expert on taxation and corporate mergers and acquisitions.
The Ginsburgs spent two days in Williamsburg meeting with students and faculty and touring campus, with Justice Ginsburg delivering a public address before a capacity crowd on "The Workways of the Supreme Court."
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the commissioning of the Marshall-Wythe Medallion, which is presented to national and international leaders of the legal profession.
