Constitutional Law Conference - Justice Breyer

Justice Breyer speaks at Brookings on October 17th at 3 p.m. -- Breyer's thoughts on constitutional interpretation and separation of powers issues remain significant to all of us -- as a new Supreme Court explores its collective judicial philosophy.

Breyer will discuss the Constitution and how the Supreme Court interprets it; the relationship among the Supreme Court, Congress, and the executive branch; and recent Supreme Court decisions on religion, free speech, affirmative action, and privacy.  He
will also expand on themes in his latest book, Active Liberty: Interpreting Our Democratic Constitution in which he discusses the Constitution's ability to adapt to current problems as well as how the U.S. government shares responsibility with its citizens.
