University president the Rev. John Jenkins announced that Ginsburg will speak at the Purcell Pavilion on Sept. 12. He says she will talk about a wide range of issues with U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Ann Claire Williams, who is a Notre Dame alumna and board of trustee member.

President Bill Clinton appointed the 83-year-old Brooklyn native to the Supreme Court in 1993. She recently said that split 4-4 decisions by the short-handed high court have left important public policy issues up in the air.

The event is free and open to the public, but a ticket is needed to attend.
