The Court and the World: American Law and the New Global Realities @ Walter and Leonore Annenberg Theater | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

The Honorable Stephen G. Breyer, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, will discuss his latest book, “The Court and the World:  American Law and the New Global Realities,” with NBC Justice correspondent Pete Williams. The book examines the U.S. Supreme Court in the context of a world of instant communication, lightning-fast commerce and shared problems, and argues that the Court is obliged to understand and consider circumstances beyond America’s borders.

Justice Breyer was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton and took office on August 3, 1994.  Prior to his elevation to the Supreme Court, he was a judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, a congressional staff member and a law professor.

A native of Wyoming, Pete Williams has been a justice correspondent with NBC News since 1993, and previously served in government as Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs and as a press official on Capitol Hill.

The conversation will be held in conjunction with the Supreme Court Fellows Program Annual Events and is co-sponsored by the Supreme Court Fellows Alumni Association and the Freedom Forum.
