As the Editor-in-Chief of Litigation, the journal published by the American Bar Association's Section of Litigation, I had the honor and privilege of meeting and interviewing Justice Stephen G. Breyer. We discussed his book, The Court and the World. In his book and in his interview, Justice Breyer drove home a salient point: Judicial isolationism in an interconnected world is not the way forward. America's highest court cannot stand aloof and isolated from the legal universe beyond its country's shores.
With dazzling intellect coupled with disarming modesty, Justice Breyer exemplifies what it means to be a jurist in the 21st century.
