Stephen Breyer Joins Harvard Law School

Following his retirement from the Supreme Court of the United States, Stephen G. Breyer has joined the faculty of Harvard Law School as the Byrne Professor of Administrative Law and Process. He will teach seminars and reading groups, author books and scholarship, and participate in the Harvard community.

“I am very pleased to return to Harvard to teach there and to write,” said Breyer in the announcement. “Among other things, I will likely try to explain why I believe it important that the next generations of those associated with the law engage in work, and take approaches to law, that help the great American constitutional experiment work effectively for the American people.”

Breyer previously attended Harvard Law School and served on its faculty from 1967 to 1980. His position as the Byrne chair is effective immediately.
