U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor spent a week in Hawaiʻi as part of the Jurist-in-Residence program at the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.

During her visit to the law school, she taught classes, judged a Moot Court practice and met with faculty and students.
