Former clerk Lori Alvino McGill spoke to CNN about Ginsburg's legacy as a champion for women's rights. The justice won five cases in front of the Supreme Court, causing it to articulate for the first time that the 14th Amendment, which states "No State shall...deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws," could be involved to achieve gender-based equality, according to The Conversation.

"She was among the first mentors to tell me I could do anything—but she also told me that it would be foolish to think I could do many things well at the same time," McGill said. "The life lessons she imparted gave me the courage to take a step back from my own career and choose, for this moment in time, to be more present for my three children."

Lisa Blatt, who clerked for Ginsburg at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, spoke to the justice's thoughtful nature. "With a marriage, new birth or a new job, a note from the Justice followed," Blatt told CNN. "And when visiting with the Justice, she always asked about our kids and how the job was going."

Following the public viewings outside the Supreme Court, Ginsburg will lie in state Friday in the National Sanctuary Hall at the Capitol building. A private interment service for Ginsburg will take place next week at Arlington National Cemetery.
