President Clinton nominated Mr. Breyer to the Supreme Court in 1994. Mr. Breyer has earned a reputation for erudition, pragmatism and the ability to work with both sides of the political divide.

He taught law for many years as a professor at Harvard Law School and at the Kennedy School of Government. He also worked as a law clerk for the Honorable Supreme Court Associate Justice Arthur Goldberg; as a Justice Department lawyer in the antitrust division, an Assistant Watergate Special Prosecutor; and as chief counsel of the Senate Judiciary Committee, working closely with Sen. Edward M. Kennedy.

Ms. Totenberg will talk with Mr. Breyer about his life before and after becoming a Supreme Court justice and his interpretation of the Constitution as a “living” document. His book, The Court and the World, will be available at Lisner for signing.
