Former Justice John Paul Stevens visits UF law school
On Tuesday, Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens visited the Levin College of Law at the University of Florida to speak with students and faculty.
Stevens, 92, served on the Supreme Court for over 30 years. During his visit, Stevens discussed his personal experiences in the legal profession and the importance of history.
“I think history is terribly important, and the more we can learn about the history the more likely we are to get it right,” Stevens said.
Stevens said he is enjoying his retirement and his ability to travel to universities to speak.
Stevens said the most important asset in the legal field is “to have everybody in the profession know your word is good because that is a critical part of the legal profession — the integrity of the lawyer.”
