Sandra Day O´Connor, Retired Assoicate Justice of the United States Supreme Court and the first woman appointed to the Court, met with students at Villa Sassetti to kick off LPD´s Fall 2010 Dialogues. A self described ´cowgirl´, Day O´Connor told the story of her journey as a young female law graduate struggling to get a job as a legal clerk to her appointment to the highest court in the United States, and shared reflections on some of the cases she decided on the court, the role of money in politics, the strengths of the U.S. justice system and some of its particularities compared to other countries. Thoughts on how her early experiences on the ranch in Arizona have influenced her life and work - and the responsibilities she felt as a pioneer for women - were interwoven throughout.
