In these brief remarks, delivered at the Hastings Law Journal’s Symposium on the Jurisprudence of Justice Kennedy, I discuss Justice Kennedy’s impact on American law. I reflect on the events that led to Justice Kennedy’s appointment to the Supreme Court and discuss his vision of the Justices as teachers for the nation and how that vision seems to have informed his view of judicial review.
