By By DEEPTI HAJELA

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg "has done as much as anyone in the last 40 years" to make the country more just and equal.

That's according to Justice Elena Kagan, her colleague on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Kagan was speaking about Ginsburg's work as an attorney and her decisions as a judge at a lecture Monday night for the New York City Bar Association.

The talk was for the annual "Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Distinguished Lecture on Women and the Law" put on by the bar association, and Ginsburg was in the audience and introduced Kagan to the crowd.

Ginsburg says she's enjoyed everything she's done in her legal career, especially because she was able to help others.
