THE Clerk of Faculty, Dr Kirsty Hood, QC, has helped honour one of the world’s major legal figures, the US Supreme Court Associate Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

A special screening of RBG, a documentary about Justice Ginsburg, at the Glasgow Film Theatre was followed by a Q&A, hosted by Femspectives, the Glasgow Feminist Film Festival.

Dr Hood was a guest panellist, with fellow lawyer Frances Ross (Clyde & Co), writer Layla-Roxanne Hill, and Lauren Clarke and Kathi Kamleitner of Femspectives.

She said: “I was delighted to have the opportunity to participate in this event.  The film not only describes Justice Ginsburg’s influence as a US Supreme Court judge, but also pays tribute to her earlier work as a litigator before that Court seeking to secure equal rights for all US citizens.  Justice Ginsburg is an inspiration – a very talented and clever jurist, who had herself to overcome prejudice and discrimination as a woman starting out on her legal career at the time when she did.”
