The leader of the state’s highest court will give a lecture about recent comments challenging the legitimacy of the judiciary.
Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack will present “Tough Talk and the Institutional Legitimacy of the Our Courts,” at 4:30 p.m. March 7 at Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St. in Milwaukee, according to a news release.
The lecture will touch on the effect of public statements, such as those made by President Donald Trump, challenging the judicial system’s legitimacy.
Roggensack will be giving the yearly Hallows Lecture, which remembers Harold Hollows, a Milwaukee lawyer, former state Supreme Court Justice and member of Marquette University Law School’s faculty.
Roggensack was elected to the state Supreme Court in 2003 and has been chief justice since 2015. She earned her law degree from the University of Wisconsin Law School.
