Legal Scholars Brad Snyder and Jeffrey Rosen in Conversation

Loading Events

March 26 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Legal scholars Brad Snyder and Jeffrey Rosen will discuss Democratic Justice, Snyder’s acclaimed new biography of Felix Frankfurter – Jewish immigrant, Harvard law professor, civil rights activist, Zionist leader, advisor to multiple presidents, and Supreme Court Justice. The remarkable, indefatigable Frankfurter participated in the seminal events of his time – involving race discrimination, anti-Semitism, workers’ rights, the US-Israel relationship, politically-charged court decisions and so many other issues that continue to challenge us. What can we learn from Frankfurter’s life that illuminates today’s fierce partisan divides on the Supreme Court and in the country at large?

Brad Snyder is a Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center and Jeffrey Rosen is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Constitution Center, a Professor of Law at George Washington University Law School, and a contributing editor of The Atlantic. Both are authors of multiple books.
