SCOTUSblog on camera: Jeffrey Rosen
“We all as citizens have an obligation to educate ourselves about the Supreme Court, about the Constitution, so that we can participate in the great conversation that is the Constitution.”
Jeffrey Rosen is president and CEO of the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, as well as a law professor at the George Washington University Law School, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, and a legal journalist and author. He is a graduate of Yale Law School, Oxford University (where he was a Marshall Scholar), and Harvard College.
In this five-part interview, Rosen discusses his background and his work at the National Constitution Center; the importance and accessibility of our founding documents; the Constitution, historical understanding and facing new technological questions; admiring Justice Louis D. Brandeis; and exhorting citizens to explore constitutional – rather than political – questions.
