Who Was Louis D. Brandeis

Tuesday, April 6, 2010
Who Was Louis D. Brandeis?

He's been nicknamed "The People's Lawyer," and The Economist called him "a Robin Hood of the law" for his work against monopolies, public corruption, unchecked corporate power, and other public causes. Louis D. Brandeis was the first Jewish Supreme Court justice and one of the most influential justices ever to serve, mostly due to the opinions he issued on free speech and the right to privacy. Join us on Tuesday when we'll hear the story of how the son of immigrants in Louisville became a Supreme Court justice with such a historical legacy.
