A podcast featuring three sitting women state Supreme Court justices discussing their experiences on their state‘s highest court. Featuring Justice Rhonda Wood of Arkansas, Former Chief Justice Bridget McCormack of Michigan, and Chief Justice Beth Walker of West Virginia.
Justice Rhonda Wood of Arkansas, Chief Justice Beth Walker of West Virginia, and former Chief Justice Bridget McCormack of Michigan discuss the law and its real-world implications.
When we talk about ‘the Constitution’ or ‘the Supreme Court,’ people are generally referring to the U.S. Constitution and the U.S. Supreme Court. Yet so many aspects of our daily lives are governed by our state’s laws and our state’s constitution.
Lady Justice: Women of the Court focuses on our nation’s state courts. That is where the vast majority of cases, more than 90 percent, are heard. If they are appealed, state courts often serve as the final arbiters on the issues that are raised.
The justices hope listeners will get to know them as people outside of the courtroom.
The views expressed on the podcast are the justices’ alone and not the views of their respective courts. The podcast is produced by the Arkansas Supreme Court’s Public Education Program.
