University of Chicago Law Review Special Issue on Justice Scalia

Featuring the Solicitor General of the United States, Judge Amy Barrett, many others, and ... me.


The University of Chicago Law Review has just published a special issue devoted to the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who was a professor at Chicago for years until he became a judge (and then, of course a Supreme Court Justice). It includes short rembrances by friends and former clerks of the Justice, and a series of scholarly articles on Justice Scalia's work.
