October 21, 2011
On Friday, October 21, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor spent the afternoon in conversation with Suzanne B. Goldberg, Herbert and Doris Wechsler Clinical Professor of Law, and Frances Negrón-Muntaner, Associate Professor of English and Comparative Literature. She spoke candidly about many of her personal experiences, from her childhood days as a Nancy Drew aficionado to her most recent time serving on the nation's highest court. The visit was well attended by students, faculty, alumni, and distinguished guests, who enjoyed the rare chance to learn about and from Justice Sotomayor. The event was co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality Law and the Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race at Columbia University.
