Judge Douglas H. Ginsburg, BS ’70
United States Court of Appeals, DC Circuit
Judge Ginsburg was appointed to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in 1986; he served as Chief Judge from 2001 to 2008. After receiving his B.S. from Cornell University in 1970, and his J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School in 1973, he clerked for Justice Thurgood Marshall on the United States Supreme Court.
Thereafter, Judge Ginsburg was a full professor at the Harvard Law School, Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OMB), and Assistant United States Attorney General in charge of the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. Concurrent with his service on the federal bench, Judge Ginsburg has taught at the University of Chicago Law School and the New York University School of Law. Judge Ginsburg is currently a Professor of Law at the Antonin Scalia Law School, George Mason University, and a visiting professor at University College London, Faculty of Laws.
He also serves on the Advisory Boards of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy; the Supreme Court Economic Review; the University of Chicago Law Review; the New York University Journal of Law and Liberty; and, at University College London, both the Center for Law, Economics and Society and the Jevons Institute for Competition Law and Economics.
Early 2020, a new PBS series, hosted by Judge Ginsburg, will air nationwide on public television. The three-part series, A More or Less Perfect Union, explores the foundational document that governs those who govern us – the American Constitution.
