On Wednesday, June 27, Senior Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court of the United States. That brought back fond memories for two of his former law clerks, William & Mary Law Professors Nancy Combs and James Stern.
You can read what they had to say about the justice in interviews in Bloomberg Law, the Virginia Gazette, and WYDaily.
In an essay in Vox, Professor Combs described Justice Kennedy as “as an optimist about American institutions, and also a realist." She also spoke about him with Ian Masters on the show "Background Briefing" (which originates from KPFK-FM in Los Angeles).
Thomas Jefferson founded William & Mary Law School in 1779 to train leaders for the new nation. Now in its third century, America's oldest law school continues its historic mission of educating citizen lawyers who are prepared both to lead and to serve.
