Portrait of Sandra Day O'Connor with quote

The World Justice Project mourns the loss of our honorary chair, retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Justice O’Connor carved out a trailblazing legacy as the first woman on the nation’s high court and as a foundational contributor to the global movement for the rule of law. Around the country, around the world, and well beyond her time on the bench, Justice O’Connor championed judicial independence and civic engagement. Her deep commitment to advancing these key underpinnings of the rule of law will continue to reverberate and inspire us.
