Justice Breyer Part 2: A Day in the Life
Justice Stephen Breyer (he of the Schwartz Lecture from a few days ago) spent additional time with our students on Wednesday, February 8, 2006. His lunchtime talk was more informal and intimate than his Schwartz Lecture, and while it had no formal title, the topic was basically, "So I'm a Supreme Court Justice - What Do I Do All Day?" Justice Breyer spoke for about 30 minutes, then took spirited questions from the capactiy crowd of students and faculty. Among other topics, you'll hear him discuss the relationship between him and his clerks, what it's like to be the newest guy in the weekly conference for all these years, and how many times he's had to get coffee for the other Justices because of it. Trust me, you don't want to miss this one. Listen in here.
