Casca is the first to strike, and, after each of the conspirators attack Caesar, Brutus is the last to stab him. The script of the play does not indicate any other order, except that all of the conspirators do stab him at least once.

According to one version from the Folger Shakespeare Library of the book Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare, in Act 3, Scene 1, just after line 84, Casca is the first to strike, then the others follow suite. In one movie version of the same thing, Brutus was the last, though you could tell he was completely unsure and really thinking if he should have planned and allowed it all to happen.
