Professor Rossum talked about his book Antonin Scalia’s Jurisprudence: Text And Tradition, published by University Press of Kansas. He examined the U.S. Supreme Court Justice’s decisions on cases that have come before the court over the last twenty years, looking at more than 600 of Justice Scalia’s written opinions. In the book he explored Justice Scalia’s textualist approach to such key structural arrangements as separation of powers and federalism, and to key constitutional provisions including the free speech, press, and religious clauses of the First Amendment, separation of powers, and the interpretation of the rights of citizens as covered in the Fourteenth Amendment. After his presentation he answered audience members' questions. 

Professor Rossum is the director of the Rose Institute of State and Local Government at Claremont McKenna College and the Henry Salvatori Professor of Political Philosophy and American Constitutionalism. The lecture was held at the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum. close
