Associate Justice Sabrina McKenna recently gave the keynote addresses at two events for the University of Hawaii William S. Richardson School of Law.

On August 17, 2016, Justice McKenna was invited to the Pacific Club in downtown Honolulu to speak to the Law School’s incoming students at their orientation lunch. She welcomed them to the legal profession, noting that their legal education will enable them to play their part in making Hawaii and the world better for future generations.  

On August 27, 2016, Justice McKenna gave the keynote address at the Law School’s Evening Part Time Program graduation ceremony, held at the Oahu Country Club. She congratulated the program on its 100th graduate, and acknowledged the special challenges evening students face, sharing the story of how her own mother attended night classes to develop new skills and provide for the family while working full time.

She advised both groups that, whether they practice law in Hawaii or elsewhere, the Aloha Spirit can and should inform the law.
