LOCAL>> Amanda Tyler – Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue

UC Berkeley law professor discusses her book on RBG with journalist Soledad O’Brien

Ruth Bader Ginsburg spent her decades in public service advocating for guaranteed rights and protections of all people. She transformed the legislative landscape by pioneering conversations on American freedom with a particular focus on gender equality.

In the new book Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue: A Life’s Work Fighting for a More Perfect Union, UC Berkeley law school professor Amanda Tyler celebrates the life work of RBG to tell the story of Justice Ginsburg’s unwavering commitment to the achievement of “a more perfect Union.” With a research focus in the Supreme Court, legal history and civil procedure, Tyler encapsulates the life of RBG and what we can learn from her experiences in politics.

Drawing from personal conversations and additional materials on Justice Ginsburg’s life, Tyler dives into her notable briefs and oral arguments, last speeches and favorite opinions, along with the statements that she read from the bench in her most important cases.

She emphasizes Ginsburg’s pursuit for constitutional interpretation that defends all people based on humanity rather than status—a mission she said all politicians should strive to follow. Dubbed “Notorious RBG,” her tireless work in the government will have a lasting impact on our nation’s political culture.

Join us as professor Amanda Tyler and award winning journalist Soledad O’Brien commemorate the life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and tell us what we can learn from the late justice’s life work.
