The Honorable Antonin Scalia, the second-most senior Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, visited with students and faculty at St. Mary’s University School of Law Thursday.
Justice Scalia addressed the law students from the bench of the school’s moot courtroom. He answered questions on the Court’s work, his understanding of the Court’s role in American society, democracy and other issues related to law.
St. Mary’s School of Law has a rich history with the Supreme Court. Five justices, including Justice Scalia, have taught at St. Mary’s Institute on World Legal Problems, which is held each summer in Innsbruck, Austria. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. will teach in the program this year for the first time.
