U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Elena Kagan will be the next recipient of the New York State Bar Association’s Gold Medal Award, making her only the 10th justice from the high court to be accorded the honor, which is considered among the country’s most prestigious, bar leaders said Monday. 

The award will be presented to Kagan at the State Bar Association’s Gala Dinner, which is scheduled to be held in New York City on Jan. 30.
