U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor visited with Kansas University and Washburn University law students on the KU campus on Friday.
Some KU undergraduates and students from area high schools were also scheduled to attend the event, which was closed to the public and the media.
She becomes the latest in a line of Supreme Court justices to visit KU in recent years, joining Chief Justice John Roberts, Sandra Day O’Connor, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Antonin Scalia and Byron White.
Sotomayor was nominated by President Barack Obama on May 26, 2009, and took her seat Aug. 8, 2009. She is the first Hispanic justice and third woman to serve on the high court.
She declined to be interviewed by the Journal-World.
