Kagan, who was nominated to the supreme court by former President Barack Obama and confirmed in 2010, is coming to the school as part of its yearly John Paul Stevens lecture, which “brings a distinguished jurist to Colorado Law each year,” according to a release from the school.

Tickets for the event are available at no cost, though they are available first to CU law students, faculty and staff and others at the university. A limited number will be available on a “first-come, first-served basis” starting at 10 a.m. Sept. 23, according to the release.

“Bringing Justice Kagan to campus adds to Colorado Law’s rich history of engaging with the U.S. Supreme Court,” said S. James Anaya, dean of Colorado Law, in the release. “From Byron White, an alumnus of the University of Colorado, to Neil Gorsuch, a former visiting faculty member, Colorado Law has a long history of connections to distinguished members of the Supreme Court.”

The talk will also be live-streamed through the CU law school’s YouTube page.
