Penn President Amy Gutmann moderated a conversation at the National Constitution Center with Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.  Justice Sotomayor, the first Hispanic and the third woman on the U.S. Supreme Court, gave a candid, intimate look at her remarkable life as described in her new memoir, My Beloved World. She recounted her journey from a Bronx housing project to Princeton, Yale Law School, the New York County District Attorney’s office, and the Federal District Court, all before the age of 40—followed by her appointment to the nation’s highest court.  Dr. Gutmann is a member of the Board of Trustees of the National Constitution Center.
