U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan will be speaking at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The associate justice’s visit on Friday is sponsored by the UW Law School. The law school’s dean, Margaret Raymond, will moderate the question-answer-presentation, which starts at 4 p.m. The event is open to the public, but tickets are limited and registration is required.
President Barack Obama nominated Kagan, the first and only woman solicitor general, to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2010. Upon her confirmation by the U.S. Senate, she became the fourth woman appointed to the nation’s highest court.
Kagan, a Harvard Law School graduate, was previously associate counsel and policy adviser for the Clinton administration. She was also the dean of Harvard Law School from 2003 to 2009. She clerked for Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and Judge Abner Mikva of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Follow @erikastrebel
