Louis D. Brandeis was an American lawyer and Associate Justice on the US Supreme Court. His parents were Jewish emigrants from Bohemia. With the family settling in Louisville, he had most of his education there. He earned his Law degree from ‘Harvard Law School’. He set up the law firm ‘Warren and Brandeis’ in Boston, with Harvard classmate, Samuel Warren. He soon built a reputation for himself taking up cases only when he thought the client was on the right side of the law. He was dubbed as a ‘People’s Lawyer’ as he did not accept payment on cases of public interest so that he could address the bigger issue. In fact, he would do considerable research on the issues of public interest, as is evident from the cases concerning insurance and working hours for women. When President Woodrow Wilson nominated him, he became the first Jew to become Associate Justice on the US Supreme Court. A member of the Progressive Movement, he gave speeches that inspired social reforms. He wrote a number of books including ‘The Opportunity in the Law’, ‘Other People’s Money and How the Bankers Use It’, and ‘Business – A Profession’. His advocacy of the ‘Right to Privacy’ is still considered path breaking, and referred to, in many cases.
