Upon his retirement from the U.S. Supreme Court in 2010, Associate Justice John Paul Stevens was the third longest-serving Justice in American history. In an intimate conversation celebrating his recent 40th anniversary since taking his seat on the nation’s highest court, Justice Stevens reflects on his decades of experience and shares his unique insight into the U.S. legal system.

John Paul Stevens served as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from December 19, 1975, until his retirement on June 29, 2010. Marcia Coyle (moderator) is the Chief Washington Correspondent for The National Law Journal.
