Amanda L. Tyler: 2021 Hatfield Lecture

Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue: A Life's Work Fighting for a More Perfect Union by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Amanda L. Tyler

Amanda L. Tyler is the Shannon Cecil Turner Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law. She is the co-author, with the Honorable Ruth Bader Ginsburg, of Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue: A Life’s Work Fighting for a More Perfect Union. Professor Tyler holds a degree in public policy from Stanford University and a J.D. from Harvard Law School. Prior to entering academia, Professor Tyler served as a law clerk to the Honorable Guido Calabresi at the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and the Honorable Ruth Bader Ginsburg at the Supreme Court of the United States. The book is an outgrowth of Justice Ginsburg’s 2019 visit to Berkeley Law when she and Tyler sat down for a conversation about Justice Ginsburg’s life.
