SandraSandra-Day-OConnor-law school portrait Day O’Connor: Her Life and Legacy. Sandra Day O’Connor will always be known as the first woman to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States but her impact did not start when she was sworn in as a Justice on September 25, 1981 and it did not end when she retired from the Court in 2006. The new guide recounts Sandra Day O’Connor’s life, works by and about her, court opinions, tributes, honors, and more. The objective of the new guide is to paint a portrait of the life of an extraordinary woman and her remarkable legacy.
