Kagan acknowledges incognito Twitter use; Ginsberg sees obstacles for women

By DEBRA CASSENS WEISS

The ABA Journal reported on Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan’s remarks during the NYSBA Gala.

In separate appearances last week, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan commented on how some things haven’t changed despite technological progress.

Ginsburg said she thought the electronic age would make it easier for female lawyers with children because you can “have the entire law library at your fingertips wherever you are.” But law firms, she said, are not sufficiently accommodating when it comes to work-life balance, report the National Law Journal and Law360.
