WATCH: Ketanji Brown Jackson sworn in as Supreme Court justice

Ketanji Brown Jackson is officially becoming a Supreme Court justice nearly three months after she won confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Jackson, 51, was sworn as the court’s 116th justice Thursday at noon. The man she is replacing, Justice Stephen Breyer, is retiring.

Biden nominated Jackson in February, a month after Breyer, 83, announced he would retire at the end of the court’s term.

Watch the swearing in below.
