Justice Stephen Breyer
In 1994, Stephen Breyer, then a professor of law at Harvard Law School, was nominated by President Bill Clinton to serve as a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.1
Breyer has also been associated with Tulane University: as an invited lecturer in 19842 and 2007,3 and as faculty for Tulane Law School's summer abroad programs in 1991 (Siena, Italy)4 and 2010 (Cambridge, England).5
Tulane's policy of cultivating ties with federal judges at all levels may be intended to gain preferential treatment for the university in court proceedings, although it creates a dilemma for judges who sit in judgment. Unlike other members of the judiciary, the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court are not bound by any code of conduct. They nevertheless are expected to lead by example.
