Jeffrey Rosen

For constitutional values to flourish in the 21st century, the only thing that can save us is the engagement and commitment of citizens like you.

Jeffrey Rosen is Professor of Law at The George Washington University Law School, the legal affairs editor of The New Republic, and a nonresident Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution. He is also president of the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, a museum and education center next to the Liberty Bell. Professor Rosen is a graduate of Harvard College, summa cum laude; Oxford University, where he was a Marshall Scholar; and Yale Law School. After law school, he clerked for Chief Judge Abner Mikva on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Professor Rosen was honored with the 2013 Golden Pen award from the Legal Writing Institute for his ìextraordinary contributions to the cause of better legal writing.î His books include The Supreme Court: The Personalities and Rivalries that Defined America, the best-selling companion book to the award-winning PBS series. He is also the author of The Most Democratic Branch: How the Courts Serve America; The Naked Crowd: Freedom and Security in an Anxious Age; and The Unwanted Gaze: The Destruction of Privacy in America, which The New York Times called the definitive text in privacy perils in the digital age. Professor Rosen is coeditor of Constitution 3.0: Freedom and Technological Change. His essays and commentaries have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic, on National Public Radio, and in The New Yorker, where he has been a staff writer. The Chicago Tribune named him one of the ten best magazine journalists in America, and the Los Angeles Times called him ìthe nation's most widely read and influential legal commentator.
