The Honorable David McKeague sits on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. After twenty years in private practice, Judge McKeague was appointed to serve as a district judge in the Western District of Michigan. He served over twelve years there before being appointed to the court of appeals in 2005. His diverse and lengthy experience gives him great insight that he brings to his role on the bench. He will speak with students about the various interpretive theories that judges employ when applying law in concrete cases, and to the merits of those theories.
