Jeffrey Toobin to Speak at HLS Class Day
The author and television legal analyst will address the Law School class of 2013.
Jeffrey Toobin ’82, J.D. ’86, senior legal analyst for CNN and a staff writer for The New Yorker, will be the guest speaker at Harvard Law School (HLS) Class Day on Wednesday, May 29. Toobin—who was an editor on the Harvard Law Review—worked with independent counsel Lawrence Walsh during the Iran-Contra scandal and became a household name during the O. J. Simpson trial in 1994-95, as a legal analyst for ABC. In 2000, he won an Emmy award for his coverage of the Elián González custody battle.
The author of numerous books, including several best-sellers (among them The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court), Toobin is a popular observer of the American legal system, and a widely trusted guide to its inner workings.
