U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor spoke yesterday at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. Justice Sotomayor addressed 250 high school and university students and offered her observations about working her way from a humble background to America's highest court.
The students, and others who attended the event, heard Justice Sotomayor talk about the need to work hard and the value of a good education.
Kathleen Nalty, executive director of the Colorado Campaign for Inclusive Excellence, said, "Justice Sotomayor said she didn't want to talk to lawyers, she wanted to talk to students." And that's exactly what Justice Sotomayor did. More about Justice Sotomayor's appearance can be learned by clicking here. A video feed from C-Span is available by clicking here.
The day also included remarks to a gathering of Environmental and Natural Resources Law program students by U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Carlos Lucero. The blog will be reporting soon on Judge Lucero's remarks.
