The Evolution of Justice Anthony Kennedy's Jurisprudence

Sponsored by the McGeorge Law Review at the McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific. 

About the Symposium

For many years, the McGeorge Law Review has hosted legal symposia centered on issues of timely legal importance. This year, in celebration of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy's 25th year of service to the U.S. Supreme Court, the McGeorge Law Review's annual symposium will highlight "The Evolution of Justice Anthony Kennedy's Jurisprudence." The event will assemble an impressive array of prominent legal scholars, including some of McGeorge's esteemed faculty and former Kennedy clerks to reflect on Justice Kennedy's most noteworthy opinions, with special emphasis on his jurisprudence with respect to life, liberty, and property, the First Amendment, international law and criminal justice.
