When Justice John Paul Stevens passed away last July aged 99, the 35 years he spent on the Court left him as one of the longest-serving, as well as longestliving, Justices in American history. Appointed by a Republican president, during his career Stevens would come to be known as one of the court's most liberal members. The opinions he wrote touched almost every aspect of American law, including administrative law (Chevron), criminal law (Apprendi), property rights (Kelo), and marijuana (Raich), and his dissents in cases like Bush v. Gore and Heller are taught in law school. Panelists, including former Stevens clerks and prominent members of the bench and bar, will discuss the impact of his decades on the Court and the lessons to be learned from his life and tenure.
