December 12, 2013 -- On Monday, December 2, 2013, UCLA School of Law welcomed Justice Sandra Day O’Connor to the law school. During her visit, she participated in an iCivics event with local elementary school children and a Q&A discussion with UCLA Law students. Four distinguished UCLA Law faculty members—Professors Iman Anabtawi, Stuart Banner, Dan Bussel and Eugene Volokh, who all had the honor to serve as clerks to Justice O’Connor—participated in the Q&A conversation. Dean Rachel F. Moran moderated the discussion, posing questions for the panel to address. Justice O’Connor discussed a wide variety of topics, ranging from her time on the Supreme Court to how she began her career in the law, including the difficulties she faced, as a female attorney, in getting a job after law school. ​
