Past Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States

In order to become a Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States, an
individual must be nominated by the President of the United States and
approved by the Senate, with at least half of that body approving in the
affirmative. Generally, a justice's qualifications are judged by the
President and, most visibly, by a Senate hearing. There is no definitive
qualification of age or experience that is a standard to be met; instead is
a much more subjective process taken by the Senate, occasionally resulting
in a sometimes controversial defeat of Presidential nominees.

The following list consists of past Supreme Court Justices since 1789 placed
in the order in which they took the judicial oath of office.
