  • Gallery Supreme Court Justices with no prior judicial experience

    Louis Brandeis (Associate Justice, 1916 - 1939): Justice Brandeis was nominated by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916. Wilson had offered him a cabinet position three years earlier but Brandeis declined, preferring to remain a lawyer and investigate the concentration of wealth by large companies, culminating in his 1914 book, “Other People’s Money, and How the Bankers Use It.” After a fierce political battle, Brandeis was seated as an associate justice in June, 1916. Brandeis is seen here (first l.) in a photo of the US Supreme Court Justices in their robes in New York City in 1917.
