Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer to Speak at UTA

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer will address students, faculty, staff and members of the general public during UTA's Maverick Speakers Series Special Edition at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, December 13, 2016.

The lecture at Texas Hall will focus on his new book, "The Court and the World: American Law and the New Global Realities," which examines the reason an increasingly globalized world obliges the court to consider circumstances beyond American borders.

Associate Justice Breyer is a graduate of Stanford University, Oxford University, and Harvard Law School. He taught law for many years as a professor at Harvard Law School and at the Kennedy School of Government.

He also served as a Supreme Court law clerk for Justice Arthur Goldberg, a Justice Department lawyer in the antitrust division, an assistant Watergate special prosecutor, and chief counsel of the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he worked closely with Senator Edward M. Kennedy to pass the Airline Deregulation Act.

In 1980, he was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit by President Jimmy Carter, and became chief judge in 1990. Four years later, Breyer was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton.
