An Evening with
Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer

In conversation with Jeffrey Toobin
September 21, 2015

In the wake of an historic summer of groundbreaking Supreme Court decisions, Justice Stephen Breyer returned to ALOUD to discuss the ever-evolving influences on America’s highest court. In his latest book, The Court and the World: American Law and the New Global Realities, Justice Breyer considers the great legal challenges facing our increasingly globalized and interdependent world. From sweeping national security policy to the use of online sites like Airbnb for international commerce, judicial awareness is no longer contained within America’s borders. Hear from one of today’s most pragmatic legal luminaries on how the world beyond our national frontiers is steering American law, and how this expansion is drawing American jurists into a new role of “constitutional diplomats.”
