Levine Courtroom. Oral argument in the case was presented by Hamline alumna Suzanne M. Senecal-Hill '00.

Chief Justice Russell Anderson (shown left with a Hamline student) thanked the Women's Legal Caucus for sponsoring the brunch, noting that "Students give us energy and it's truly a pleasure to come to Hamline Law School." Justice Alan Page urged students to "seek excellence in everything you do and also enjoy yourself. If you work to be the best that you can be you'll likely be successful," he said. Justice Paul Anderson told students, "You're in the right place in this law school. Hamline will give you opportunities to do many good things. . . You need to show up for those opportunities, gain experience and learn important lessons. In the process, you'll develop confidence, skills and insight," he promised.
