Explore the American judicial system through one of its sharpest minds, plus; 

  • “Ride” along with Ruth and her future husband Martin Ginsburg, a.k.a. “Marty,” on their first date.
  • Watch RBG work out! Not bad for someone over 80!
  • Dress up as justices and make your voice heard at a recreation of the Supreme Court bench.
  • Stop at ten listening stations and hear RBG’s delivery of oral arguments, majority opinions, and forceful dissents in landmark Supreme Court cases.

 You’ll have a chance mingle with other information professionals over a lovely buffet lunch. The fee, which includes lunch and admission to exhibitions, is $25.00 for members, $20.00 for students, unemployed and retired members, and $30 for non-members
