Supreme Court Justice makes his Duke debut

With relatively little pomp and fanfare,  Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia will be coming to Duke tomorrow to speak about "his life in the law." He will be appearing at the Law School's Star Commons at 12:15. Oddly enough, the Law School has done little advertising for one of the most well-known conservative justices on the Court, appointed under President Ronald Reagan.

It should be a rousing address, nonetheless. When Scalia came to Harvard Law School last October, he defended some of his controversial views in favor of strict interpretation of the Constitution, shouting “I don’t have to prove that originalism is perfect!” to a packed audience.
