Melvin I. Urofsky discusses 'Louis D. Brandeis: A Life'
Melvin I. Urofsky visited campus Sept. 29 to discuss his monumental work on the university’s namesake, Louis Brandeis. "Louis D. Brandeis: A Life" looks at Brandeis as reformer, lawyer, and jurist, but also Brandeis the man. For his work, Urofsky, professor of law and public policy and professor emeritus of history at Virginia Commonwealth University, drew from previously unavailable family papers and other materials. The result is a truly remarkable story of Justice Brandeis’ impact on American society and jurisprudence.
