Judge Elena Kagan about the life of the Supreme Court during Chicago

The death of the United States Supreme Court, Antonin Scalia, forced the remaining eight members of the United States Supreme Court to work on compromise, Justice Minister Elena Kagan said during a conversation at the University of Chicago – Kent Law.

For one hour before studying law and high-level attorneys, including Illinois State Attorney, Lisa Madigan said Kagan, who hopes that efforts will continue because the court is with her strength. Kagan did not directly address the perception that the court was increasingly politicizing, but stressed that more than half of the trial would be decided unanimously. After the death of Scaliff in 2016, the court after eight members decided on major cases of abortion and juvenile justice, but equally divided – ie the Court’s judgment – in the opinions of trade unions and immigration.

Anita Alvarez and Governor of the US District. Gary Feinerman, were also at the address on Monday

Kagan is known for his uncomplicated, sometimes colloquial, written views – Kagan quotes Dr. Seuss and Spider-Man, and said he struggled to read them easily and understandably to non-legal experts. He called the former judge Thurgood Marshall, who was directed by the best attorney of the twentieth century.

Kagan, 57, and now the youngest of the youngest gentlemen of Gorsuch, laughed at stories of seven years of juvenile justice. The paper included not only the notes of court meetings, but also the Coffee Committee – said he successfully filed for a frozen yogurt machine.

Kagan, a former Clinton lawyer who became the first Dean of Harvard Law School, is the fourth Supreme Court judge. She was also a professor at the Faculty of Law at the University of Chicago and joined the faculty of the same year as the former faculty president. Shapiro was one of his disciples.

In 2009, he named Obama as the first female lawyer in the country – a lawyer representing the government before the Supreme Court – a year before appointing him to the Supreme Court.
