Students from University of Wisconsin-Superior’s Pre-Law Society, along with legal studies senior lecturer Nathan LaCoursiere, recently visited the University of Minnesota Law School for the annual Robert A. Stein Lecture featuring U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan.

The trip, which has become an annual tradition for the group, was made possible by Dr. Maria Cuzzo, Interim Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, and Professor, Ph.D., JD, Mediator Legal/Paralegal Studies Conflict Resolution/Mediation, and several regional judges. Cuzzo and LaCoursiere are both alumni of the University of Minnesota Law School.

“It was a privilege to attend the event as a student to be surrounded by professionals in the legal community,” said Autumn Bass, Pre-Law Society vice president. 

For the students, the opportunity to interact with a current Supreme Court Justice was an experience of a lifetime.

“Justice Kagan’s humor and her ability to have friendships with justices that are much different than her is something I will take away from this meeting,” said Amanda Foster, Pre-Law Society treasure. 

“It was interesting to learn that she is the only justice on the Supreme Court that does not have a background of being a judge,” said Bella Gigliotti, president of the Pre-Law Society. “So her first year on the bench was much different than the others’ because she had to figure out the best way for her to do her work as a judge.”

Last year, the Pre-Law Society attended the Stein Lecture featuring the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, John Roberts.

All students are welcome to join the Pre-Law Society, which gives students more in-depth knowledge and context in relation to local, state and national legal institutions, and also serves as a great resource for students considering law school as a potential graduate track.
