Former PJP Board Member Nominated to the High Court
Former Peter Jennings Project Board of Advisors member Elena Kagan was nominated today by President Barack Obama to take Justice John Paul Stevens seat on the Supreme Court. 2008 PJP fellows will remember Kagan as part of our panel on Women in the Law. But Kagan was more than a PJP participant. Until she resigned after assuming the position as Solicitor General for the Obama Administration, Kagan was an active board member, advising director Todd Brewster on programming and showing dedication to PJP’s mission to increase constitutional awareness in the press. Here is an admiring piece about her from the New Republic, authored by PJP faculty member Jeffrey Rosen and released today.
