The Committee of 100 applauds Governor Brown's commitment to diversity and his recognition that talented people of all backgrounds are integral to our justice system. Governor Brown has made the right choice in nominating Professor Goodwin Liu for the California Supreme Court.
Professor Goodwin Liu is eminently qualified to serve on the California Supreme Court. He is well respected for his intellect, as graduate of Stanford University, Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar, and Yale Law School and for his commitment to public service, having clerked for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court and worked as a Special Assistant to the Deputy Secretary at the U.S. Department of Education. Professor Liu is an Associate Dean and Professor of Law at UC Berkeley School of Law and a renowned expert on education and constitution law.
His confirmation as a California Supreme Court Justice underscores the importance of diversity, opportunity, and the American Dream.
