|Keynote Luncheon: Inside the Secret World of The Supreme Court|
A high-profile senior analyst for CNN and staff writer for The New Yorker, Jeffrey Toobin is one of the country’s most esteemed experts on politics, media and the law. With unparalleled journalistic skill, Toobin has provided analysis on some of the most provocative and important events of our time, including the O.J. Simpson trial, the Kenneth Starr investigation and impeachment of President Bill Clinton, and the disputed Florida recount of the 2000 presidential election. One of the closest watchers of the 2006 Martha Stewart trial, his accounts of the case for CNN and The New Yorker were among the most well-balanced and thorough.
The author of critically acclaimed New York Times best sellers, Toobin’s 2007 book The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court, delves into the historical, political and personal inner workings of the Supreme Court and its justices to reveal the inside story of one of America’s most mysterious and powerful institutions. Toobin’s renowned bestseller Too Close to Call: The 36-Day Battle to Decide the 2000 Election is the definitive story of the Bush-Gore presidential recount. Too Close to Call is, like his other books, packed with news-making disclosures and written with the drive of a legal thriller. With clarity, insight, humor and a deep understanding of the law, Toobin deconstructs the events, the players and the often-Byzantine intricacies of our judicial system, ending up with a remarkable account of one of the most significant periods in our nation’s history.
