On June 13, the NCPA welcomes Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, a leading voice who tenaciously defends the natural law freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution. Famous for his candid remarks, signature wit, and personal anecdotes, Judge Napolitano is the American media’s most outspoken analyst of the legal system, most fervent critic of government intervention into personal lives and commercial transactions, and most passionate defender of the Constitution.
With great conviction and brutal honesty, Judge Napolitano reminds audiences what America is all about: The purpose of government is to protect our freedoms; you cannot make a poor person rich by making a rich person poor; and the engine of our prosperity has been rugged individualism, not government intervention.
About Judge Napolitano
Judge Andrew Napolitano is the youngest life tenured Superior Court judge in the history of the State of New Jersey. While on the bench from 1987 to 1995, Judge Napolitano presided over more than 150 jury trials and sat in all parts of the Superior Court -- criminal, civil, equity, and family. He has handled thousands of sentencings, motions, hearings, and divorces. He taught constitutional law and jurisprudence at Delaware Law School for two years and Seton Hall Law School for 11 years and was often chosen by the students as their most outstanding professor. Judge Napolitano returned to private law practice in 1995 and began television broadcasting in the same year.
Judge Napolitano joined Fox News Channel (FNC) in January 1998 and currently serves as the senior judicial analyst. He provides legal analysis on both FNC and Fox Business Network (FBN) throughout the day, Monday through Friday. He is nationally known for watching and reporting on the government as
it takes liberty and property.
In his most recent book, It Is Dangerous to Be Right When the Government Is Wrong: The Case for Personal Freedom, Judge Napolitano gives a sweeping treatment of natural rights and all the philosophical, religious, and ideological principles that underscore the concept of human freedom. In this back-to basics on freedom, The Judge addresses the hard questions about the Constitution, private property and a free society.
Judge Napolitano has written five previous books on the U.S. Constitution: Constitutional Chaos: What Happens When the Government Breaks Its Own Laws; The Constitution in Exile: How the Federal Government Has Seized Power by Rewriting the Supreme Law of the Land; A Nation of Sheep; Dred Scott’s Revenge: A Legal History of Race and Freedom In America and Lies the Government Told You: Myth, Power and Deception in American History. His works have also been published in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The New York Sun, The Baltimore Sun, The (New London) Day, The Seton Hall Law Review, The New Jersey
Law Journal and The Newark Star-Ledger. His weekly newspaper column is seen by millions each week. He lectures nationally on the Constitution, the rule of law, civil liberties in wartime, and human freedom.
Judge Napolitano received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University in 1972, and received his Juris Doctor from University of Notre Dame in 1975.
