LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- University of Kentucky law students will get to spend some time hearing insights from the nation's newest member of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Justice Elena Kagan is scheduled to speak on the Lexington campus Thursday evening.

Kagan, at age 53, is the youngest member of the nation's highest court. She was appointed in 2010 by President Barack Obama. She previously served as solicitor general of the United States and dean of Harvard Law School, among other accomplishments.

Her visit is part of a UK College of Law lecture series.

Justice Clarence Thomas spoke at UK last year.
