On Monday, September 10, 2012, Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy visited with students and faculty at the University of Notre Dame’s London Law Centre.
During his time with students, Justice Kennedy discussed the role of the U.S. Constitution in shaping the American identity and the Constitution’s role in serving as a model throughout the world. Justice Kennedy further noted the powerful influence of Britain’s constitutional tradition on the U.S. Constitution and its basic values.
“We are very grateful for Justice Kennedy’s visit. His personal attention and discussions with our London Program students was invaluable,” noted Notre Dame Associate Professor of Law Jeffrey Pojanowski.
Since 1968, Notre Dame’s London Law Program has allowed law students a chance to study internationally. Located in the heart of central London in Trafalgar Square, the program now offers students the opportunity to learn from American and English faculty during full-year, semester, and summer programs.
Justice Kennedy was nominated by President Reagan and took his seat as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court on February 18, 1988.
