Warren's days at Rutgers and Penn

Excerpt on the roots of Warren's continued education. I hope you'll read it through, it is an interesting read, bringing some insights to her political opinions today.

(Unlike many law schools then, Rutgers actively recruited a diverse student body flush with women and people of color. Tuition cost around $900 per year. Students volunteered for legal clinics representing poor people facing eviction or discrimination. They researched cases on police conduct, including the killing of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg had recently finished a teaching stint there, and while one page in the 1969 yearbook touted her trailblazing work for women in law, another joked that she “doubled as a go-go dancer on the East Side.”)

1. Very interesting article!

 

(by the way, when I saw "enquirer" on the link I got a lil nervous - much to my relief this article was from The Philadelphia Enquirer not that trashy supermarket tabloid lol)
