Please join us for a conversation with Professor Lisa Kern Griffin: First Principles: Sandra Day O'Connor's Prescription for an Angry Nation. Justice O'Connor-the subject of the recent biography First, by Evan Thomas-has been one of the most admired figures in American public life. Professor Griffin clerked for Justice O'Connor and will discuss her three-part legacy: a lived example of how people thrive in the face of challenges, a lesson about the courage to make compromises, and a theory about the long game of American democracy. Although she has withdrawn from public life, Justice O'Connor still has many lessons to teach-as a person, a professional, and a patriot-and those lessons seem especially significant today.
