Central High School Students Meet Supreme Court Justice

On May 6, 2008, the University of Louisville's Brandeis School of Law hosted a Kentucky Authors Forum conversation with United States Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer. As part of the law school's Signature Partnership program, students from Louisville's Central High School were able to attend the forum along with UofL faculty, staff and students. These high school students enjoyed a rare opportunity to meet with a sitting U.S. Supreme Court justice. Following the forum, Justice Breyer took some time to talk to the Central High students and to pose for a group photo.

Through the Central Law and Government magnet program, students at Central High School have been provided a variety of enrichment activities - attending moot court competitions, attending speaker events, visiting the law school for a day of introduction to the law school, and participating in a writing competition. Such activities are hoped to "spark the interest" of students in becoming lawyers.
