Kennedy Returns To Campus

April 7, 2008

Tags: Faculty & Scholarship, 2008

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, a longtime member of the Pacific McGeorge faculty, returned to campus on April 3.

The Supreme Court jurist paid a surprise visit to two Criminal Law classes in the morning, engaging first-year students in lively discussions on theoretical and practical elements of the American justice system. He later attended a luncheon presentation by Judge Fausto Pocar, presiding judge of the ICTY and law professor at the University of Milan, about “Persecution as a Crime under International Law.” An informal meeting with more than 40 foreign LL.M. students concluded his five-hour visit.

Justice Kennedy, a Sacramento native, taught Constitutional Law at Pacific McGeorge from 1965 to 1988. He teaches a course on Fundamental Rights in Europe and the United States each summer at the law school’s International Legal Studies program in Salzburg, Austria.
