JustBrandeis Seminars

Brandeis — celebrated as a jurist, Zionist, humanitarian and American citizen — the JustBrandeis seminars focus on Brandeis’ questions, his ethical and legal tradition and his cultural world. Uncover not only the biography of the man but his sources of inspiration and a measure of his energy for combatting moral injustice and pursuing social reform. Each course will seek to illuminate the ancient ethical and legal question: What is justice?
