Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia made the rounds at Tulane Law School last month, spending a day talking to hundreds of law school students, faculty, alumni and friends by giving three presentations and attending a reception in his honor.
While lecturing to law professor Stephen Griffin's class of first-year students, Scalia discussed issues ranging from the guarantees of liberty in the original Constitution (before the Bill of Rights was enacted) to the Supreme Court's role in protecting states' rights.
Scalia came to Tulane at the invitation of law professor Athanassios Yiannopoulos, who has become acquainted with the Justice through the law school's summer program in Greece, where Scalia has on a number of occasions been a guest lecturer.
