US Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett speaks at U of M, students protest
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett was in Minneapolis Monday to take part in a lecture series for the University of Minnesota Law School.
The lecture took place Monday from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the Northrop Carlson Family Stage at 84 Church Street Southeast in Minneapolis.
Her appearance was part of the University of Minnesota Law School’s 2023 Stein Lecture series.
Some student groups protested her appearance in response to recent Supreme Court rulings, including her role in the decision that overturned Roe v. Wade.
Coney Barrett is not the first U.S. Supreme Court Justice to partake in the annual lecture series. Past justices include Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (2014), Justice Antonin Scalia (2015), Justice Sonia Sotomayor (2016), Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. (2018) and Justice Elena Kagan (2019), according to the university.
