U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor gave a candid and inspiring lecture to students at Vanderbilt Law on Tuesday, the school reports. In addition to talking about her personal story, Sotomayor shared her thought process for making decisions in the nation’s highest court. “With every case in which we rule, there’s a winner and a loser. I bear that in mind with every decision.” Sotomayor said. “There’s never a question of doing the least harm. It’s almost inevitable we will cause harm to someone.” She encouraged the students to live “with integrity” and leave the world “a slightly better place than you found it.”
