Great-grandson of Justice Louis Brandeis to speak tonight at UofL event Paul Brandeis Raushenbush is writer, religious activist and administrator at Auburn Seminary


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Paul Brandeis Raushenbush, a great-grandson of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis (1856-1941), will address an audience tonight during a University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law program.


    Raushenbush agreed to speak during the 6:30 p.m. Brandeis Medal event, Seelbach Hilton Hotel, after U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan—who is the recipient of the medal—had to cancel at the last minute. A ceremony to honor Kagan will take place later this year.


    Raushenbush is a writer, editor and religious activist. He is senior vice president for public engagement at New York City-based Auburn Seminary.


    Brandeis School of Law Dean Susan Duncan said Raushenbush will talk about what life was like inside the Brandeis family. “We are all really looking forward to hearing his unique inside perspectives,” she said.


    Raushenbush’s previous roles include executive editor of global spirituality and religion for The Huffington Post, editor of BeliefNet, associate dean of religious life and the chapel at Princeton University and president of the Association for College and University Religious Affairs. He is an ordained Baptist minister.

    The ticketed dinner and celebration honors the legacy of Louis Brandeis and recognizes those who have preserved his ideals.
