At the Podium

Toobin is an unbiased, deeply analytic (and often very funny) expert on all matters of American law, politics, and media. Toobin provides a unique look into the inner workings of The Supreme Court and its influence, as well as how upcoming elections will shape the court and, in turn, the nation. Also the perfect moderator for a panel, his relaxed style, sense of humor and unprejudiced, forthright analysis make for a fascinating presentation.

Jeffrey Toobin was an excellent speaker! He was credible (definitely knew his topic), articulate, and clever. One attendee said that if she didn’t attend another lecture all year, she got her money’s worth with Toobin!

About Jeffrey Toobin

A high-profile senior analyst for CNN and staff writer for The New Yorker, Jeffrey Toobin is one of the country’s most esteemed experts on politics, media, and the law. With unparalleled journalistic skill, Toobin has provided analysis on some of the most provocative and important events of our time. The author of critically acclaimed best-sellers, Toobin delved into the historical, political, and personal inner workings of the Supreme Court and its justices in his book The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court.

Toobin’s latest best-seller, American Heiress: The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes, and Trial of Patty Hearst, was released to considerable acclaim in August 2016. The book examines the 1974 kidnapping of Patty Hearst, granddaughter of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst, by the Symbionese Liberation Army. The astonishing, theatrical details of the saga are firmly bound to a tangible reality, aided by more than a hundred interviews and thousands of previously secret documents. Toobin allows readers to peek into the past – right into one of the most insane eras of American history. The book has already been optioned for film by Fox 2000. His other book, The Run of His Life: The People vs. O.J. Simpson, was the basis for the acclaimed mini-series on FX, starring Cuba Gooding, Jr., John Travolta, and Sarah Paulson.

Toobin’s next book will focus on the ongoing probe into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.

Toobin lives in New York City with his wife and two children.
