Anthony Kennedy

William and Mary professors reflect on their time with Justice Kennedy

William and Mary professors reflect on their time with Justice Kennedy

After serving for a little more than 30 years, Justice Anthony Kennedy will step down from the United States Supreme Court at the end of July.

In light of this announcement, many legal professionals and journalists have looked back at Kennedy’s career and the impact it has had on our nation’s laws.

However, two William and Mary law professors took a more personal approach at reflecting on Kennedy’s career. Both served as the justice’s clerk for a year and had many personal encounters with the man. The two talked about their time serving as Justice Kennedy’s clerks, what kind of man he was and the impact he had on their lives.
