<<Born June 10, 1932, Martin Ginsburg was raised in a traditional Long Island home. After attending Cornell University and before graduating magna cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1958, he noticed a fellow Cornell classmate, Ruth Bader, and before long, the two married. He was also drafted during this time frame and was stationed in Oklahoma for some time. Despite the many avenues life can lead anyone down, he remained focused on his passion for the law. He was admitted both to the New York Bar as well as the District of Columbia.

Ginsburg found himself in the role as a visiting professor at Stanford Law School, University of Chicago Law School and back to Harvard Law School, all honors he took great pride in. It was his time spent teaching at New York University Law School during the 1960s, however, that he was most drawn to and most proud of.


As mentioned, Ginsburg spent much of his career in the tax sector until Justice Ginsburg was appointed to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit during President Carter's time in office. After the couple and their family relocated to the D.C. area, Ginsburg became a Professor of Law at Georgetown University.

Ginsburg co-authored a tax guide with Jack S. Levin, titled ''Mergers, Acquisitions and Buyouts'' and was the recipient of many awards, including the 2006 American Bar Association Tax Section's Distinguished Service Award, Fellow of the American College of Tax Counsel Honoree and several others. Other career milestones included his representation of H. Ross Perot, former presidential candidate, in a business matter. He and Perot became close friends and he even reached out to Perot after President Carter's nomination of his wife to fill the bench vacancy.

Ironically, Ginsburg found himself as part of the legalities in one of the nation's largest manufacturers in 1984. The General Motor's acquisition was on target, while Ginsburg dealt with the intricacies of the potential tax repercussions.

He and his wife had what many of their friends say was an ideal marriage. It's rumored he cooked, once a term, for his wife's clerks and the ongoing joke between the married couple was that he did not marry her for her cooking. Clearly, this couple had far more in common than just their passion for the American Justice System.

Sadly, Ginsburg's passing today due to complications from metastatic cancer was not his first experience with the disease. Shortly after serving in the military during the 1950s, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. After two surgeries and radiation therapies, he was deemed in remission. It came as no surprise to those who knew when that he never skipped a beat; he continued his everyday routines, including finishing his education.

Martin Ginsburg is survived by his wife, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and their two children, Jane Carol Ginsburg and James Steven Ginsburg. He also is survived by several grandchildren.

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
