"The Ninth Vote in the Stop the Beach Case"

Prof. Nancy Marder (right), a former law clerk to Justice Stevens and director of the law school's Jury Center, moderated the Q&A session, which included questions about Justice Stevens' experiences as a World War II codebreaker, how he would have voted in Snyder v. Phelps, why he wears a bowtie, and his views on cameras at the Supreme Court.

The IIT Chicago-Kent community was honored to welcome retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens on October 3, 2012, for a lecture on "The Ninth Vote in the Stop the Beach Case," co-sponsored with the Jack Miller Center. Following the lecture, Justice Stevens graciously answered questions from the audience during a Q&A session moderated by Professor Nancy Marder, one of his former law clerks and director of the law school's Jury Center. 
 
At the conclusion of the program, Professor Marder announced that the Jury Center will be renamed in honor of Justice Stevens. Read more about IIT Chicago-Kent's Justice John Paul Stevens Jury Center...
