I am very pleased to return to Harvard to teach there and to write. Among other things, I will likely try to explain why I believe it important that the next generations of those associated with the law engage in work, and take approaches to law, that help the great American constitutional experiment work effectively for the American people.
— Justice Stephen Breyer, commenting on his return to Harvard Law School in the wake of his retirement from the Supreme Court as the Byrne Professor of Administrative Law and Process. Breyer, a Harvard graduate, will teach seminars and reading groups at the law school, and will continue to write books and scholarly articles. “Justice Breyer is a historic jurist and a world-class legal scholar who also has a distinguished history as a member of this faculty,” said Dean John Manning. “I am thrilled to welcome him home to Harvard Law School.”
