Wesleyan College Roosevelts discuss Scalia with Professor Finn!

Turns  out I’ve been making a critical error on here for a while – the Roosevelt Institute leader I’d been calling Sylvie Stein all this time is actually named Wesley Ing ’12. My bad, Wesley:
Whether you’re going to Antonin Scalia’s talk on Thursday and want to know more about him, his opinions, and the Supreme Court, or didn’t get a ticket, and want to learn all this great stuff anyway, come to the ROOSEVELT INSTITUTE this Tuesday and get your judicial juices flowing with constitutional law Professor John Finn! Professor Finn will be giving a brief talk and then facilitating a discussion on Scalia’s opinions and the constitutional issues they’ve raised. The meeting is open to any and all interested students!
Where: Shapiro Center, at the top of Allbritton
When: Tuesday, March 6th at 7pm
Why: Because John Finn is The Man
Also, feel free to bother Wesley by email (sstein01@wes) if you’d like to get some recommended reading on Scalia and his originalist approach to the Constitution.

Wesleyan, Meet Scalia

Antonin Scalia just announced some mad spring tour dates, and we’re in luck: the Supreme Court justice will be performing his new post-dubstep free-jazz side project in Eclectic speaking at the university’s Hugo L. Black Lecture on Freedom of Expression this spring. Props to the Argus for breaking this one:

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia will be the keynote speaker for the University’s Hugo L. Black Lecture on Freedom of Expression this upcoming spring, as confirmed by Dean of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Programs Gary Shaw. The lecture is scheduled to take place on March 8.

I’m pretty excited, and apparently so is CollegeConfidential:
