As part of the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the dedication of Martin Luther King Jr., Hall, home to the University of California, Davis, School of Law, the 2009 Law Review Symposium will examine the career of U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. Since his appointment by President Gerald Ford in 1975, Justice Stevens has crafted a rich jurisprudence on matters involving core values of liberty, equality, and security.   Legal experts from academia, journalism, and the practice, many of whom served as law clerks to the Justice, will analyze his work on topics including counterterrorism, criminal justice, abortion, affirmative action, and environmental protection.
