Is Justice Scalia a Spokesman for the Cleveland Chamber of Commerce?

February 14th, 2012

“Try to find a practice that enables you to maintain a human existence … time for your family, your church or synagogue, community … boy scouts, little league,” Scalia said, noting he started with Jones, Day in Cleveland. “You should look for a place like that. I’m sure they’re still out there. Maybe you have to go to Cleveland.”

Cleveland! At least it’s not DetroitThat’s what he tells UChicago Law Students.

Plus, Nino told students not to take any Law-and-X classes:

After Scalia left the University of Chicago in 1982 when President Ronald Reagan named him to the federal bench, the school hired Barack Obama as a senior lecturer. One of Obama’s most popular classes was “Current Issues in Racism and the Law.”

Scalia told the Federalist audience three years ago to stick to conventional classes such as the one he taught on contracts.

“I took nothing but bread-and-butter classes, not “Law and Poverty,” or other made-up stuff, Scalia said to laughter. He said his advice to law students at the time was: “Take serious classes. There’s so much law to learn. Don’t waste your time.”
