Justice Elena Kagan Visits College of Law
United States Supreme Court
September 19, 2013
UK Singletary Center Recital Hall
The University of Kentucky College of Law is pleased to announce Justice Elena Kagan as the fall 2013 Roy R. and Virginia F. Ray Distinguished Lecturer. Justice Kagan visited the College of Law on September 19, 2013.
After a welcome reception from the Women's Law Caucus, and a lunch with the College of Law faculty, Justice Kagan guest taught in Professor Salamanca's Federal Courts class, answering a series of students' pre-selected questions.
Later that evening, she joined UK Law Dean David A. Brennen before a sold-out crowd at the University of Kentucky Singletary Center Recital Hall for a conversation about her experiences on the nation's highest court. Kagan spoke about her relationships with the other justices, and how "We disagree, but then we put things aside and come back the next day, fresh," she said.
