Ave Maria University is proud to present “Our Country’s Good Servant: a Symposium Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Justice Antonin Scalia” featuring lectures by esteemed professors Hadley Arkes and Gerard Bradley.
Professor Arkes was Amherst College’s Edward Ney Professor of Jurisprudence from 1987 through his retirement in 2015. Professor Arkes knew Antonin Scalia before he became a judge, and will offer a talk on “Memories of Nino,” sketches of Nino Scalia, personal and jural, including Scalia’s “conflicted” relation with Natural Law.
Professor of Law at the University of Notre Dame, Gerry Bradley, will offer his assessment of Justice Scalia’s impact along three axes: the conservative legal movement since 1980; the relationship of moral truth to constitutional law; and specifically on the constitutional law of church and state.
The symposium is made possible through the Ave Maria University Henkels Lecture Fund; members of the public are invited to attend.
