Justice on the Brink

The death of Justice Ruth Bader Gins­burg was a seis­mic shift in the history of the Supreme Court, cement­ing a conser­vat­ive major­ity on the bench as the coun­try exper­i­enced a pandemic, under­went a divis­ive pres­id­en­tial elec­tion, and witnessed the Capitol insur­rec­tion. In her new book, Justice on the Brink, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times writer Linda Green­house provides a behind-the-scenes look at the twelve months that reshaped the Supreme Court and the years of conser­vat­ive activ­ism behind the rise of Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

Join us for a conver­sa­tion with Green­house moder­ated by professor Melissa Murray of the NYU School of Law.

Produced in part­ner­ship with New York University’s John Brademas Center
