Speakers

The Honorable Kate M. Menendez
U.S. Magistrate Judge @U.S. District Court, Minnesota
Magistrate Judge Kate Menendez took the bench in April of 2016. She spent the previous 18 and a half years in the Office of the Federal Defender, where her work included all levels of practice, from initial appearances through trial and appeal. The second half of her career in the Defender’s Office involved a focus on training younger attorneys, handling appeals and overseeing complex special projects. During Judge Menendez's time as a public defender, she had the privilege of representing detainees at Guantanamo Bay, a man on the federal death row, and arguing twice to the US Supreme Court. Judge Menendez completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Chicago and went to law school at NYU, where she was a Root Tilden Public Interest Scholar. She then clerked for a year for the late Hon. Sam. J. Ervin III on the Fourth Circuit.
