Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Teach in Venice Summer Program

The law school is honored to announce that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her husband, Georgetown University Professor of Law Martin Ginsburg, will be teaching in the law school’s 2008 Venice Summer Abroad Program. Justice Ginsburg will team teach a course on Personal Autonomy and Equality in a Comparative Perspective with WFU Professor of Law Suzanne Reynolds, while Professor Martin Ginsburg will teach Comparative Tax Systems with WFU Professor of Law Joel Newman. In addition to their teaching duties, the Ginsburgs are looking forward to several planned social events where they will interact more informally with student participants. The Venice program will run from July 7 until August 1.

The law school will also host abroad programs again this summer in Vienna and London. All three law school summer programs are designed to give students a comparative perspective on legal issues and expose students to the legal culture of the host country through outside trips to courts and law offices and guest speakers from the local legal community. The Venice and Vienna locations also enroll Italian and Austrian students who add a valuable voice to classroom discussions.
