Union State’s Bill Docking said of Toobin: “He is an excellent communicator who provides insightful analysis whether commenting on legal matters, politics, or a host of other topics.”

Toobin received his bachelor’s degree from Harvard College and graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review.

After a six-year tenure at ABC News, where he covered the country’s highest-profile cases and received a 2000 Emmy Award for his coverage of the Elian Gonzales custody saga, Toobin joined CNN as a legal analyst in 2002. He now serves the network as senior analyst.

Toobin has been a staff writer for The New Yorker since 1993 and has written articles on such subjects as Roman Polanski and the Bernie Madoff scandal.

He also has written profiles of Justices Clarence Thomas, Stephen Breyer, John Paul Stevens, and of Chief Justice John Roberts. His article, “An Incendiary Defense,” broke the news that the O.J. Simpson defense team planned to accuse Mark Fuhrman of planting evidence and to play “the race card.”
