"The most important political office is that of private citizen." Louis D. Brandeis
This famous quote from Louis D. Brandeis is window to the man who dedicated his life to public service, first as an attorney fighting for the rights of the common man, and later as a U.S. Supreme Court Justice protecting the laws of the land.
Born in Louisville, Kentucky in 1856, Brandeis excelled in school and enrolled in Harvard Law School at the age of 19 without any prior formal education. He graduated two years later as class valedictorian.
