       HAMMOND -- Associate Justice Catherine D. “Kitty” Kimball of the Louisiana Supreme Court will present Southeastern Louisiana University's annual James Livingston Memorial Lecture on Business Ethics at 7 p.m., April 20, in Southeastern’s Student Union Theatre. 
       The lecture, co-sponsored by the College of Business and Technology and Arts and Lectures Committee, is free and open to the public. The lecture series was founded in 1984 by Hammond businessman John O. Batson in memory of his long-time friend and associate James Livingston.
       Kimball has served Louisiana as Associate Justice on the Supreme Court since her election in 1992. She was reelected in 1998 without opposition. She also serves as an adjunct professor of law at Tulane Law School’s Summer Abroad program.
       After graduating in 1963 from Bolton High School in Alexandria, La., Kimball earned her juris doctorate from Louisiana State University in 1970. She worked as a law clerk in the United States District Court, Western District of Louisiana; as special counsel in the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office; and as general counsel for the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Criminal Justice.
       Kimball managed her private law practice from 1975-1982 while also serving as Assistant District Attorney for the 18th Judicial District. She was elected District Judge, Division A, for the 18th Judicial District and served in that capacity until her election to the Louisiana Supreme Court.
       Among the honors Kimball has earned are induction into the Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert Law Center Hall of Fame and selection as the 1999 outstanding alumnus of the LSU Law Center. She holds membership in many professional memberships and activities, including the Louisiana Coordinating Council on Domestic Violence.
