Judicial Activism: Power Without Responsibility? - A Justice Breyer Podcast
It's been a busy week here at the Law School, and we'll have several podcasts to offer you over the next few days. We were honored to have Justice Stephen Breyer, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, with us yesterday and today. Yesterday, he delivered the 2006 Schwartz Lecture on "Judicial Activism: Power Without Responsibility?" The Ulysses and Marguerite Schwartz Memorial Lectureship at the University of Chicago Law School is held by a distinguished lawyer or teacher whose experience is in the academic field or practice of public service. Needless to say, Justice Breyer fits the bill. Justice Breyer spoke to a capactiy crowd of students, alumni, faculty, and friends of the Law School. The podcast, of course, is here to ensure that those of you who could not be here can enjoy it just the same. Listen in here.
Tune in shortly for the podcast of Justice Breyer's talk today on what it is that Supreme Court Justices do all day. (Hint: Twiddling of thumbs was not mentioned.) As always, instructions for listening and subscribing, should you need them, are available here.
