These are a modified version of the remarks I delivered at a panel at Hastings Law Journal’s 2019 Symposium about the jurisprudence of Justice Kennedy. My remarks focus on Justice Kennedy’s jurisprudence on abortion, which illustrates the promises and limits of the Justice’s commitment to a jurisprudence of institutionalism, dignity, and civility.
