On Monday, January 23, 2023, from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m., author Dahlia Lithwick will discuss her New York Times bestselling book, “Lady Justice: Women, the Law, and the Battle to Save America." The book examines the impact women in the law have made on modern American history. The event is being presented by the Women’s Leadership Initiative and the Women’s Law Caucus at Albany Law School.
Dahlia Lithwick is a senior editor at Slate and, in that capacity, has been writing their Supreme Court Dispatches and Jurisprudence columns since 1999.

She is host of Amicus, Slate’s award-winning biweekly podcast about the law and the Supreme Court. She is a regular contributor at MSNBC.
Professor Sarah Rogerson, Director of The Justice Center at Albany Law School, will interview Lithwick. “In LADY JUSTICE, Dahlia Lithwick reminds us that the law is full of possibility in spite of the targeted attacks by those who turn the law against women and other historically minoritized groups. It is thrilling to be in conversation with this incisive thought leader and to welcome her to our hopeful and determined community of legal scholars at Albany Law School.”
In 2018, Lithwick received the American Constitution Society’s Progressive Champion Award, and the Hillman Prize for Opinion and Analysis. Lithwick won a 2013 National Magazine Award for her columns on the Affordable Care Act. She has been twice awarded an Online Journalism Award for her legal commentary.
