On Thursday December 18, 2003, Justice Breyer spoke at a luncheon at the Los Angeles Times in Los Angeles marking the 50th anniversary of Britain’s Marshall Scholarship program. Justice Breyer won a Marshall Scholarship in 1959 and studied at Oxford University for two years. The British Parliament created the scholarship program in 1953 to provide an opportunity for American students to study at British universities. The program was named in honor of former U.S. Secretary of State George Marshall, architect of the Marshall Plan, which rebuilt Europe following World War II. Britain awards 40 Marshall Scholarships to American students each year. Consul General Hunt spoke about the selection of recipients of the Marshall Scholarships. Counsellor Peirce spoke about the scholarships before introducing Justice Breyer. After Justice Breyer spoke about the value of the Marshall Scholarship in his life, he responded to questions from members of the audience.

Also featured was a re-air of a portion of Justice Breyer’s December 4, 2003 speech to the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C. The topic of the speech was the relationship between the law and economics. The video aired was from the question and answer portion of the session and dealt with the relationships between the Justices and the process by which the Supreme Court reaches decisions.
