Decades before she would become an administrator at the University of Southern California and Cornell’s 13th president, Elizabeth Garrett, worked as a clerk for Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall — who she said was the “greatest litigator of the last century.”

Garrett, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs at the University of Southern California, said this experience “was one of the most special experiences of [her] life,” outlining her thoughts about her time working for Marshall during a lecture she delivered at USC on Sept. 7, 2011. She clerked for Marshall from 1989 to 1990.
