Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan to visit UA Law School

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Law students at the University of Alabama are getting a chance to hear from a member of the U.S. Supreme Court. Associate Justice Elena Kagan will address students at the law school on Friday morning. Kagan is only the latest Supreme Court justice to speak in Tuscaloosa. Ten justices have spoken in the past at Alabama, which often is ranked among the top U.S. law schools. Kagan will speak as part of a lecture series named for retired U.S. District Judge W. Harold Albritton of Montgomery. Albritton helps brings justices to Alabama through his contacts and his family funds the visits. President Barack Obama appointed Kagan to the court in 2010.
