Episode 10: Beyond Their Opinions

July 15, 2021

Lady Justices Speak at the Arkansas Bar Association Annual MeetingBeing a state Supreme Court justice is about much more than writing opinions on important cases. Justices are also responsible for overseeing the court system in their state.

Part of this usually involves finding a passion and trying to affect change where they think it’s needed, whether that’s working to help children in foster care, studying the reasons behind an ever-growing prison population, or trying to keep their colleagues safe when job stress and substance abuse seems to be affecting their ability to best serve the public.

The women were recently invited to speak at the Arkansas Bar Association’s annual conference, where they discussed this and other topics, like technology in the court. 

This is the last episode of Season 1. We'll return with Season 2 in September!
