Justice Kagan to Speak Friday at UT

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan will take part in a public discussion with University of Tennessee College of Law Dean Doug Blaze during a Friday visit to the school. The event will take place at 1 p.m. in the Cox Auditorium. The presentation will kick off the law school’s new Richard Rose Distinguished Jurist in Residence Program. According to Blaze, Kagan was asked to be the inaugural speaker because she is the justice assigned to the Sixth Circuit, which includes Tennessee. As previously reported in TBA Today, Kagan also will preside over the final round of the law school’s moot court competition while in town for the event. The UT Daily Beacon has details
