Sandra Day O'Connor, Retired Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, recently gave a lecture at Cornell University.
eClips captured O'Connor's comments during the Milton R. Konvitz Lecture in American Ideals that she gave at Cornell University while she was the Law School's Distinguished Jurist in Residence. Her talk was titled "The Importance of an Independent Judiciary," but the justice instead gave a history of oral argument before the court and its role in helping justices focus on various legal issues.
