Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg may have been a petite woman, but she was a judicial giant. Karen Rothenberg, former dean of the University of Maryland Carey School of Law, shares her memories of the late justice and her legacy. Rothenberg is a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics and the Marjorie Cook Professor Emeritus of Law at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law. 

Then, a cloud of uncertainty as the Supreme Court’s new term begins today. Will President Trump’s conservative nominee Judge Amy Coney Barret be confirmed? How quickly could it happen? University of Baltimore law professor Michael Meyerson discusses the shifting ideological shape of the court, and its imminent docket.
