Kagan will visit the U on Oct. 21 as part of the law school's lecture series.

Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan is coming to the University of Minnesota this fall.

The U’s law school announced Tuesday the Supreme Court Justice will visit the school on Oct. 21 as part of its Stein Lecture Series. The event will take place at Northrop Auditorium at 4 p.m.

Before she sat on the Supreme Court, Kagan was a law professor at the University of Chicago and Harvard.  She served in the Clinton Administration before she was eventually nominated for the Supreme Court in 2010 by President Barack Obama. 

She took her seat on Aug. 7, 2010. 

Past lecturers with the series have included former Vice President Walter Mondale and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Last fall, Chief Justice John Roberts spoke at Northrop as part of the series.

The general public can reserve tickets beginning Sep. 16.
