About Jeffrey Rosen
Jeffrey Rosen is President and CEO of the National Constitution Center, a museum and education center that sponsors national debates about the Constitution and constitutional issues. He is also a Professor of Law at The George Washington University Law School, a Contributing Editor of The Atlantic, and a nonresident Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institute.
His latest book, Louis D. Brandeis: American Prophet, was published on June 1, 2016, the 100th anniversary of Brandeis’s Supreme Court Confirmation. His other books include The Supreme Court: The Personalities and Rivalries that Defined America, the best-selling companion book to the award-winning PBS series; 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. Rosen is co-editor, with Benjamin Wittes, of Constitution 3.0: Freedom and Technological Change. His next book, due out March 20th, 2018, will focus on the life and legacy of the only man to serve both as President of the United States and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, William Howard Taft.
Rosen is a provocative storyteller whose insight is essential intelligence for everyone in the digital age. He proposes ways of reconstructing the zones of privacy that law and technology have been allowed to invade. For organizations seeking to answer the questions posed by technology, he instills a deeper understanding of both employee and customer relations.
His essays and commentaries have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, The New Republic (where he was the legal affairs editor), on National Public Radio and in The New Yorker. The Chicago Tribune named him one of the “Ten Best Magazine Journalists in America,” and The Los Angeles Times called him the nation’s most widely-read and influential legal commentator. An acclaimed teacher, he has recorded lectures on the future of privacy, free speech, and property for The Teaching Company’s “Great Courses.”
Rosen is a graduate of Harvard College, summa cum laude; Oxford University, where he was a Marshall Scholar; and Yale Law School. He lives in Washington, D.C., with his wife Christine and two sons.
