General Session: Our Constitutional Legacy

Georgia World Congress Center Ballroom Level-Thomas Murphy Ballroom
General Session
Sandra Day O'Connor is a trailblazer who has made an enduring mark on the nation. In this 225th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution, you will hear from the first woman—and crucial swing justice—appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court on the principles that have made the nation strong through the centuries. She'll share her views on representative democracy, civic education and fair courts. She is the author of three books, including the recently released Out of Order, a history of the Supreme Court, its famous justices and how it evolved into the sometimes controversial institution it is today.

  • Presiding:
  • Speaker Terie T. Norelli, New Hampshire, NCSL President
