KNOXVILLE - Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, the court's newest justice and its fourth female, will give a lecture Friday at the University of Tennessee.

The event, sponsored by the UT College of Law, will be structured as a conversation between Kagan and Law Dean Doug Blaze. It will be at 1 p.m. at the Cox Auditorium in the Alumni Memorial Building.

Kagan was appointed by President Barack Obama in 2010 as the court's 112th justice. She will be the third sitting justice to visit UT in the last 22 years, following Justice Clarence Thomas in 2010 and Antonin Scalia in 1990.
