Judge Learned Hand
This event was hosted by the Library Company of the Baltimore Bar.
Constance Jordan talked about her grandfather, Judge Learned Hand, a long serving judge for the Court of Appeals Second Circuit. He is believed by some to be the “most influential judge in the United States who has never sat on the Supreme Court.” In her book, Reason and Imagination, Ms. Jordan samples some of the correspondence between her grandfather and other intellectual and legal minds of the early 20th century, including Theodore Roosevelt and Felix Frankfurter.
