Strathmore Speakers Series & Onondaga Free Library present: Jenny Breen, "The Supreme Court and the Shaping of American Society"
Join the Strathmore Speakers Series and Onondaga Free Library for an evening with Syracuse University College of Law professor Jenny Breen, as she discusses the impact of the Supreme Court's recent rulings on American politics. Looking beyond the well-publicized verdict in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Professor Breen will provide analysis of several of the Court's lesser-known, yet equally consequential rulings. Upcoming cases, including the deeply significant Moore v. Harper, will also be addressed. A brief Q&A will follow Professor Breen's talk.

Jenny Breen teaches Constitutional Law, Administrative Law, and Labor Law. Her interdisciplinary scholarship is centrally concerned with democratic governance in the United States and pays particular attention to the roles of gender and labor politics. Her current research examines the Supreme Court’s relationship to democratic erosion in the United States. She has also written in the areas of immigration and criminal law. Her writing has appeared or is forthcoming in journals including the Berkeley Journal of Employment and Labor Law, the University of Hawai’i Law Review, the American Criminal Law Review, and the Journal of Policy History. She received her J.D. from Cornell Law School and her Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Pennsylvania.
