“Justice Breyer has worked tirelessly to give faith to the notion that the law exists to help the people.” –President Joe Biden, on the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer
Over his 28 years on the Supreme Court, retired Justice Stephen Breyer penned an impressive list of majority and dissenting opinions. Now, we are honored to hear Justice Breyer’s perspective in person as he shares insights from his latest book, Reading the Constitution. Justice Breyer will engage in conversation with distinguished attorney and Central member Tali Farhadian Weinstein. In his book, Justice Breyer provides a compelling critique of the current judicial landscape and proposes a path forward. He rejects the notion that interpreting the Constitution is a simple exercise in textual analysis and lifts up the Supreme Court's long-held tradition of dynamic, pragmatic Constitutional interpretation that addresses society’s evolving needs. As a complement to the program, members attending in person will receive a free copy of Justice Breyer's book.
