U.S. Supreme Court Justices

Before the new Court term begins on October 5, some justices of the U.S. Supreme Court are speaking in public.

Justice Kagan speaks of her experience as Solicitor General of the United States, the position she had before joining the Court, and of course about her new position. Her comments about how she writes her opinions and who she sees her audiences to be are especially interesting. 55 min, no transcript.
Justice Stephen Breyer has written a new book, The Court and the World. He spoke recently about it at the National Constitution Center. 1h 2 min, no transcript.
