Chief Justice Keith: Politics and Law
Sponsored by Robins Kaplan LLP and the Minnesota Supreme Court Historical Society

Alexander M. “Sandy” Keith passed away in 2020. He served as a remarkably effective Chief Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court from 1990 to 1998. Keith demonstrated respect and support for attorneys and courts at all levels, a sense of the judiciary’s important yet restrained role in society, and a commitment to independent judgment grounded in law. That last commitment surely surprised some observers. Among Keith’s impressive range of experiences was an early career in partisan electoral politics. Yet his work in politics did not prevent him from standing against the forces of politics when he was a judge—including the political interests of the governor who appointed him. Drawing on a panel of speakers who knew him well, this CLE explores Sandy Keith’s unique, extraordinary, and sometimes unexpected contributions to the judiciary and the law in Minnesota.
