The D.C. Circuit is showing up in force at the Federalist Society’s annual National Lawyers Convention today through Saturday at the Mayflower Hotel, three stops away from Judiciary Square on the Red Line.
At the same time, in another room, Judge Williams will moderate a panel on “Arizona v. U.S.: Immigration Policy & the Economy.”
On Saturday, at 12:30 p.m., Judge Griffith will moderate a debate on whether natural Law should inform constitutional law. The disputants are Hadley Arkes and Chief Judge Alex Kozinski of the Ninth Circuit. Good luck with that, Judge Griffith.
On Saturday, at 4:15 p.m., former D.C. Circuit Judge and current Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia will deliver the closing address and sign copies of his new book, Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts.
The topic of this year’s Convention is “The Future of U.S. Constitutional Law in the Supreme Court.” The schedule is here.
