    Over the course of his distinguished career, the late Justice Antonin Scalia devoted extensive consideration to questions of legal interpretation. Through his many opinions on the court of appeals and the Supreme Court of the United States, his academic writings, and his public statements, Justice Scalia emerged as the leading exponent of what became known as the textualist philosophy of statutory interpretation. This year’s program will examine Justice Scalia’s approach to statutory interpretation and consider his long-term impact on how lawyers, legislators, judges, and academics read legislation.
