ABSTRACT
The author draws a comparison between the rhetoric language of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an associate justice at the U.S. Supreme Court as an advocate and a judge whilst argumenting, litigating and legislating. She informs that Ginsburg never displayed much dudgeon often as an advocate however it was first accentuated in Ginsburg brief of the U.S. Supreme court case of Reed v. Reed. She further discusses several Supreme Court cases to illustrate Ginsburg briefs including United States v. Virginia, Shelley v. Kraemer, and Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. She states that in Virginia Military Institute (VMI) case, Ginsburg as advocate mentioned that real gender equality was overdue and as justice she made it the law of the land.
