On October 28, the Center for Media Law and Policy will be joining with the First Amendment Law Review to present a symposium that will bring together lawyers and scholars from across the country to discuss “The First Amendment Legacy of Justice Antonin Scalia.”
In the wake of Justice Antonin Scalia’s death earlier this year, FALR will host a spirited discussion and assessment of Justice Scalia’s effect on First Amendment jurisprudence from different ideological perspectives.
As the symposium’s keynote speaker, Judge Jeffrey S. Sutton of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit will initiate the event. Judge Sutton served as a law clerk under Justices Antonin Scalia and Lewis Powell from 1991-1992. Having served on the bench for longer than a decade, Judge Sutton will share his experiences working with Justice Scalia as a law clerk, and Justice Scalia’s influence on his own judicial philosophy.
