Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice John Paul Stevens were interviewed as part of C-SPAN’s Supreme Court Week. 

Chief Justice Roberts talked about a wide variety of topics, including the history of the court, its role in society, the role of the chief justice, and the process that unfolds at the Supreme Court - from how the court decides which cases to hear and how they ultimately decide these cases. The interview took place in the East Conference Room of the Supreme Court.

Justice John Paul Stevens gave a guided tour through the three distinct parts of his chambers. He began in the area where his law clerks work, then went to the area where his assistants sit as he talked about many personal items on the walls. Finally, Justice Stevens went to his private chamber to talk about other personal items in his office, and the role of a Supreme Court justice and his thoughts on the process that unfolds at the court.
