Without Fear Or Favor

With a full heart, I accept the solemn responsibility of supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States and administering justice without fear or favor, so help me God.  I am truly grateful to be part of the promise of our great Nation.  I extend my sincerest thanks to all of my new colleagues for their warm and gracious welcome.  I am also especially grateful for the time and attention given to me by the Chief Justice and by Justice Breyer.  Justice Breyer has been a personal friend and mentor of mine for the past two decades, in addition to being part of today's official act.  In the wake of his exemplary service, with the support of my family and friends, and ever mindful of the duty to promote the Rule of Law, I am well-positioned to serve the American people.

-- Supreme Court Associate Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, in a statement issued by the court following her swearing in, 30 June 2022
