Join Outlaws, YLW, and CDO for a lunch event with Vermont Supreme Court Justice Beth Robinson. We will hear about the intertwined legal, political, and public education efforts that led to Vermont’s groundbreaking civil union law, and, later, the first marriage equality law in the country that was legislatively enacted. Prior to Justice Robinson’s appointment to the Vermont Supreme Court in 2011, she was a co-founder of Vermont Freedom to Marry and a civil rights litigator, serving as co-counsel in the path-breaking case that legalized same-sex civil unions in Vermont.
Former Chief Justice Marshall and Justice Robinson will share their own experiences with state courts, as attorneys and on the bench, and offer perspectives on service in state courts by judges and law clerks. Former Chief Justice Marshall served 14 years on the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and was the first woman to serve as Chief Justice. She also was the first woman named General Counsel of Harvard University. Justice Robinson has spent six years on the Vermont Supreme Court, after a distinguished career in public interest litigation.
