Alumni Association hosts 'Conversation with Justice Sandra Day O’Connor'

September 18, 2009

The Arizona State University Alumni Association will team with AZ Magazine to host “A Conversation with Justice Sandra Day O’Connor” from 7 to 9 a.m., Oct. 9 at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa.

A trailblazing jurist whose roots in Arizona run deep, O’Connor was the first woman to be appointed as a U.S. Supreme Court Justice, where she served from 1981 through her retirement in 2006. Prior to her term on the Supreme Court, she worked as a lawyer, an elected official and a judge in Arizona. She became the namesake for the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law in 2006 and was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama in 2009.

The Alumni Association event will begin with breakfast, followed by a discussion with Justice O’Connor about her personal leadership style, how she manages through difficult times, and advice she has for anyone who wants to make a difference. Admission to the event is $40 for ASU Alumni Association members and $45 for non-members. To register, visit
