WHO IS THE SPEAKER:
Justice Elizabeth ("Leza") Kerr was elected to the Second Court of Appeals in November 2016, following a three-decade-plus legal career focused on civil litigation and appeals. She graduated from Rice University with a B.A. in 1978, double majoring in English and Art History, and received her J.D. from the University of Texas at Austin School of Law in 1982. After a two-year federal clerkship, Leza moved to Fort Worth in 1984 and began her private practice with a large firm.
Both converts, Leza and her husband Jon were received into the Church in January 1994 and are members of St. Patrick Cathedral. Although they were married in 1991 in a civil service, on the day they became Catholic, Leza and Jon not only made their first confessions but also received the sacraments of first communion and holy matrimony. They have three children, the youngest of whom is 18.
