The University of California Press will publish a book co-authored by the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg next year, the Associated Press reports.
Ginsburg’s Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue: A Life's Work Fighting for a More Perfect Union, co-written with law professor Amanda L. Tyler, will be published by the university press next spring.
“In this collection, the two bring together [their] conversation and other materials—many previously unpublished—that share details from Justice Ginsburg's family life and long career,” the publisher says on a webpage for the book. “These include notable briefs and oral arguments, some of Ginsburg's last speeches, and her favorite opinions that she wrote as a Supreme Court justice (many in dissent), along with the statements that she read from the bench in those important cases.”
Tyler, a former clerk for Ginsburg, said collaborating with the justice was a “special privilege.
“As we exchanged drafts of various parts of this book, the Justice was every bit as rigorous an editor as she had been 20 years ago when I clerked for her,” Tyler said. “Right up until the end, she was still teaching me about the craft of writing, how important precision is, and to never use four words when three will do.”
Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue is slated for publication in March of 2021.
