Description:

As a lawyer in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, he pioneered how modern law is practiced. The author of the right to privacy, he led the way in creating the role of the lawyer as counselor and pioneered the idea of pro bono public work by attorneys. Named to the Supreme Court, Brandeis, ranked as one of the nation's leading progressive reformers. He invented savings bank life insurance in Massachusetts and was a driving force in the development of the Federal Reserve Act, the Clayton Antitrust Act, and the law establishing the Federal Trade Commission. The first full-scale biography in twenty-five years of one of the most important and distinguished justices to sit on the Supreme Court: a reformer, lawyer, and jurist.
