RBG’s daughter, 64-year-old Jane Ginsburg, has somewhat followed in her mother’s footsteps by pursuing a legal career. According to the Columbia Law School website, Jane graduated from the University of Chicago with a Bachelor’s in 1976 and a Master’s in 1977, before pursuing a Juris Doctor degree from Harvard University. She was then granted a Fulbright scholarship, and went on to earn a Diplôme d’études approfondies in 1985, as well as a Doctorate of Law in 1995 from the University of Paris II.
These days, Jane is the Morton L. Janklow Professor of Literary & Artistic Property Law at Columbia Law School, where she also serves as the faculty director of its Kernochan Center for Law, Media and the Arts. She teaches a variety of legal courses, from legal methods, to copyright law, international copyright law, and trademarks law, and has authored and co-authored a wide variety of textbooks.
Jane married a fellow lawyer named George T. Spera, and they have two kids: Paul, who is an actor, and Clara, who is a federal judge. A few years back, Paul fathered his first child, who is RBG’s first (and only!) great-grandchild. Very exciting!
