U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg used her appearance in Arkansas Tuesday to recount her life in law, and the reasoning behind her decisions and dissents of the past 26 years.

Ginsburg spoke to a sold out crowd at North Little Rock's Verizon Arena as part of the Clinton School of Public Service's Kumpuris Distinguished Lecture Series. The school's namesake, former President Bill Clinton introduced the justice he appointed to the nation's highest court in 1993.

Despite recent news concerning her health, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will still be speaking this evening in Little Rock. The lecture, part of the Clinton School and Clinton Foundation’s Kumpuris Distinguished Lecture series had to move to the Verizon Center due to high demand for tickets. 

Terri Beiner is the dean of the William H. Bowen School of Law. She says one of the reasons Ginsburg may be so popular is her inspiring story.
