Jay Wexler, law professor at Boston University, spoke with Boston Public Radio on Monday about his time working as a clerk for the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, starting in 1998.

"I was a year out of law school, so I learned everything about being a lawyer from her," he said. "They were the lessons that a young lawyer needs to learn early in their career, and I learned them from [Ginsburg] because she was the most careful, precise, serious and brilliant legal thinker that I certainly had ever encountered then and ever since."
