Georgetown Law Dean William M. Treanor’s statement on the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

September 18, 2020

“I am heart-broken by Justice Ginsburg’s death. She was an extraordinary Justice, a brilliant lawyer who changed the law through her fight for women’s rights, and an inspiration to us all. She was a great friend to Georgetown, and she and her late husband Marty were treasured members of our community. I will never forget her visits to Georgetown Law and her interactions with our students. It was a joy to watch their faces as they saw their hero. She embodied the best in the law, and I admired her more than I can say. Her death is a profound loss.” – Dean William M. Treanor
