correspondent hannah brandt explains what this means for the courts and the country. >> minutes after justice stephen breyer officially retired justice ketanji brown jackson took his place. not only is it historic, but for this moment in the court's history, it is transformational. justice jackson is the first black woman on the high court. her addition isn't expected to change the court's ideological balance, but george washington law, dean, dayna bowen, matthew tells me her background and perspective are unique. she brings perspectives that had been missing. >> and i also expect that those perspectives are going to be influential on other members of the court. >> justice jackson is joining the court after several important and controversial rulings. and at the moment when the country is recognizing just how much of an impact the court's decisions have, the court has per pound impact on the daily lives of people. the court is planning to rule on another slate of big issues like affirmative action in
3:16 pm
education, state election law and corporate regulations. but de matthew says americans can do more than just wait for the court to decide. we have to change our strategy from one that passively weeks. but the supreme court to protect those rights only well, just as jackson will likely often end up in the minority. welcome justice jackson to the court and to our common calling. the matthew is confident she will make her. mark t is a with real experiences that will be brought to bear on real in real time today in washington, i'm hannah brandt. >> and joining us now for some additional perspective on all this is market russell, a law professor at santa clara university. thank you so much for joining us on kron. 4 news at 3. >> thank you so much. >> so professor, speak to the symbolic move that's happening here with president biden appointing justice brown to the court. she is the first black woman in the first public defender to be a justice. so how much do you see this shaping future rulings moving ahead for the
3:17 pm
supreme court? >> i think that given the supreme court decisions of the last couple weeks as well about as others, i don't see an immediate change in results. however, i think it is an incredibly significant and seismic change for the history of the supreme court. and i think also for the ability of someone to be able to communicate with those justices in the who are very conservative justice jackson has a long history of being able to do that for a time being a clerk for justice breyer and those skills will come into play in a very healthy way. >> and we know that the court has finished the bulk of its rulings, at least until the fall. so what do you expect justice bound to be working on between now and october? >> let's hope the rest of the justices as they take their vacations of covid. we have to
3:18 pm
take that into account. the cases in which us or have already granted quite significant. as mentioned, the firm action, some cases actually was created with you today. that goes to the very, very heart of our election system in the right to vote in the states. and there are others having to do with lgbt rights and the intersection of that with free exercise of religion. so know that she is very skilled and knowledgeable about handling that and i'm sure she will have more than enough to do to start. >> also mention some of those cases the is expected to look in the months to come, including the role of race in college admissions, redistricting, voting rights. how do you anticipate justice brown to act on on these cases? >> it was really refreshing in her nomination hearings was that despite some pretty nasty criticism and i certainly
3:19 pm
believe that many others who didn't know about her at all believed that she was. she was a person of integrity who is actually? according spent 2 senators and asking questions. and so we don't know what her results would be. she doesn't know. she said over and over and over again. she said i approach each case with fresh eyes without fear and without favor. so i think that's what we can expect from >> and last quick question for you, professor, is how do you think this appointment is going to shape the justice system overall moving forward? >> well, as you mentioned at the beginning, the symbolic significance is enormous. and but that's not there's also a very practical effect. i think that will happen in her ability to communicate with others on the in a cordial and respectful fashion and that she will try to build bridges she can. she is also already
