Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst and Best-Selling Author of Suicide Pact
Judge Andrew P. 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 currently a Distinguished Visiting Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School. He 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.
At the Podium
Judge Napolitano 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. He also lectures nationally on the rule of law, civil liberties in wartime, and on human freedom.
The Judge is the author of nine books on the U.S. Constitution, two of which have been New York Times Best Sellers. His most recent book, Suicide Pact: The Radical Expansion of Presidential Powers and the Lethal Threat to American Liberty presents a history of presidential law-breaking and argues that the Congress and the courts have permitted modern presidents to assume powers never delegated to them by the Constitution, and thereby assault our freedoms.
Judge Napolitano is a nationally-recognized champion of personal freedom.
His prior books include: Theodore and Woodrow: How Two American Presidents Destroyed Constitutional Freedom, 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, Lies the Government Told You: Myth, Power and Deception in American History, and It’s Dangerous to Be Right When the Government Is Wrong: The Case for Personal Freedom. Judge Napolitano’s 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.
Judge Napolitano received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University in 1972, and received his Juris Doctor from University of Notre Dame in 1975.
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
