Justice Clement is a rule of law judge who firmly believes in “equal justice under law.” She faithfully interprets the law and dispenses fair and impartial justice. Justice Clement respects the separation of powers and understands that the role of the judiciary is limited to interpreting and applying the Constitution and laws as written. She knows it is not her job to legislate from the bench. Justice Clement puts her rule of law principles into practice each day on the Michigan Supreme Court.
Judges and justices should be impartial, objective and independent. Every person that interacts with the justice system deserves judges that are respectful, listen to all sides, and make thoughtful decisions based on the law and not personal opinion or beliefs. Justice Clement is committed to abiding by these fundamental principles to ensure justice for every person in the state of Michigan.
