Spring Symposium: February 2019


“The Jurisprudence of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy:
Four Decades of Influence”

October 4, 2018

UpdateJudge Kavanaugh will no longer be attending this symposium. The Journal remains excited about the speakers who will attend and we hope this will be a successful scholarly event focused on the jurisprudence of Justice Kennedy.

— Due Process rights, including LGBT rights and same-sex discrimination.
— The overall impact of Justice Kennedy’s judicial work on the U.S. Supreme Court as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and on American law generally.
