‘World at global tipping point’

Sharon Tobin

Former US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has described the world as at “a global tipping point” where “even facts and reason are under assault like never before”.Giving a public lecture at Trinity College in Dublin, she described it as a moment that will determine whether we embrace “free people, human rights and democracy” or “retreat to closed societies, oppression and authoritarianism”.Speaking to a packed to capacity lecture hall, it was speech directed at millennials, whom she said were “proving to be some of the most effective activists”.Read more >>>>

Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivered an impassioned speech about the merits of democracy during a special visit to Dublin.

She was being recognised with an Honorary Doctorate at Trinity College Dublin and spoke to a crowd at the university’s Edmund Burke Theatre, an audience including students, activists and politicians, including former Tanaiste Frances Fitzgerald.

The hour long engagement was sprinkled with signature Hillary presentation: discussing the ongoing fight for women’s rights, the increasingly powerful influence over the West by Russia with just the right amount of humour.

“A lot has happened since I was last in Ireland. I became a grandmother twice over, which is just about the greatest thing in th world. As you may have heard, I ran for president. The grandparenting went great, but the other part, not so much,” she said.

Wikimedia CommonsFormer classmates of Hillary Rodham Clinton LAW ’73 are working with the Law School’s development office to create a fund in Clinton’s honor, a year and a half after the former secretary of state’s historic defeat in the 2016 presidential election.Rosalind Fink LAW ’72 — a former classmate of Clinton who is helping spearhead the new Hillary Rodham Clinton Fund for the Public Interest — said she expects two recent Yale graduates doing “public interest work” to receive year-long fellowships from the fund next fall, once the Law School formally announces its creation.Although the development of the fund remains at an early stage, Fink said the project’s ultimate goal is to raise money for the Law School to create more legal clinics, which give law students hands-on experience working with clients on complex issues like immigration.

Veronica Guerrero LAW ’20 noted that Clinton is one of the school’s most famous alumni. And while she is a political figure, Guerrero said, the Law School should honor Clinton as someone who has used her law degree to help the country. She added that having a fund named for Clinton is exciting given that “law tends to honor a lot more men.”

Clinton is slated to give this year’s Class Day speech in May.
