This year’s Radcliffe Institute Medalist is Margaret H. Marshall, Ed.M. ’69, the twenty-fourth chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court (now retired). She is senior counsel at Choate Hall & Stewart, LLP, as well as a senior research fellow and lecturer at Harvard Law School. (She is also an incorporator of Harvard Magazine Inc.) Marshall will give the keynote address during the Radcliffe Day luncheon on May 25 in Radcliffe Yard.

Born in South Africa, Marshall graduated from Yale Law School and practiced in Boston before becoming vice president and general counsel for Harvard University in 1992. She was first appointed to the Supreme Judicial Court in 1996 and three years later became its first female chief justice.

The luncheon follows a morning panel discussion, “From Front Lines to High Courts: The Law and Social Change,” moderated by Law School dean Martha Minow, Ed.M. ’76. Panelists include Marshall, Jennifer Gordon ’87, J.D. ’92, Linda Greenhouse ’68, and Renée M. Landers ’77. Visit the event page for further details and registration information.
