Melvin Urofsky - Louis D. Brandeis

Sunday, October 11, 2009 at 5:00 pm

Urofsky, editor of a five-volume collection of Brandeis’s letters, has put his deep and intimate knowledge of the man to work in this landmark biography. Nominated for the Supreme Court by Woodrow Wilson, Brandeis was a progressive reformer who maintained that law has to change in order to stay current with the times. Many of the powerful arguments that Brandeis expressed in his dissents served later as the basis for corrective legislation.
