Ruth Bader Ginsburg - On teaching.

Lynn GilbertComment

"I found I liked teaching. I liked the sense of being my own boss. I had the good fortune not only to teach one of the subjects I wanted to teach but also to write about what interested me. That was different from a law firm where the notion of the hired gun is true to this extent: You have a client, he or she has a problem, and you work on that problem. There’s a tremendous luxury in being a law teacher in that you can spend most of your time doing whatever interests you." Ruth Bader Ginsburg
