Legal Grounds | M.C. Sungaila
Considering the timing of Justice Breyer’s retirement announcement, coupled with the Biden Administrations promise to nominate a Black Woman to the Supreme Court, I couldn’t have asked for a better guest this month.
Returning to the podcast is one of the top appellate attorneys in the country, who has contributed to cases that have reached from the Supreme Court to the International Human-Rights Courts, M.C. Sungaila.
A strong advocate for women and under-represented groups at large, M.C .is a recipient of the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, and has sat on boards as distinguished as The Rand Corporation and as creative as Red Hen Press.
And it just so happens that she’s started a new podcast - The Portia Project - which seeks to inspire the next generation of women lawyers and law students by sharing the stories of high achieving women in the law – their paths to the bench, the bar, and beyond.
We discuss her journey towards starting her podcast, the surprising and encouraging willingness for female justices to contribute to a larger dialogue of representation, a fascinating case about Holocaust Art Recovery, and so much more.
Enjoy the Show!
