This event is open to the entire campus community. It is closed to the general public.

Livestream viewing locations will be available on both the Bristol campus and the Providence campus.

On the Bristol campus, livestream viewing will be in the:

Justice Ginsburg’s visit will mark the eighth time that a sitting or retired U.S. Supreme Court justice has addressed RWU School of Law students. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy gave the law school’s first commencement address in 1996, and law students have since heard from Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. (2008), Justice Antonin Scalia (2008), Justice Stephen G. Breyer (2011), Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. (2012), Justice Elena Kagan (2013) and retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor (2013).
