Justice John Paul Stevens

In Conversation with Judge David Tatel

  • This event has passed.

By the time of his retirement in June 2010, John Paul Stevens had become the second longest serving Justice in the history of the Supreme Court. Now he draws upon his more than three decades on the Court, during which he was involved with many of the defining decisions of the modern era, to offer an unprecedented call to arms, detailing six specific ways in which the Constitution should be amended in order to protect our democracy and the safety and wellbeing of American citizens.

Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution is written with the same precision and elegance that made Stevens’s own Court opinions legendary for their clarity as well as logic. Justice Stevens will be interviewed by Judge David Tatel of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.
