A high-profile senior analyst for CNN and staff writer for The New Yorker, Jeffrey Toobin is an unbiased, deeply analytic, and often very funny expert on American law, politics and media. Toobin gives us an unparalleled view into the inner workings of the Supreme Court and its influence, as well as insight into how our recent elections will shape the court and, in turn, the nation. Don’t miss Toobin as he deftly deconstructs some of the most provocative and important events of our time.
