Speaking about her work as a Supreme Court Justice in Minnesota, Joan Ericksen Lancaster says, "It's important for a justice to have experience, evenness of temperament, and a willingness to think about how a decision today will play out in years to come.
"Those of us on the bench have to do all we can to see that the system is just. Justice is about people's freedom—to invest, to marry, to divorce, to raise children—rights we sometimes take for granted. Think how difficult it would be if you didn't have that! . . .
"To me, it comes down to hope.... Hope, I believe, is a calling of people of faith, and it requires that you get out there and work! Hope is something we all need, and it's another reason we need that center within us that we can draw from, that center that allows hope to exist."
