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.
The annual lecture is named in honor of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black and endowed by Leonard S. Halpert ’44. The series serves to bring distinguished speakers with expertise in matters relating to freedom of speech and the First Amendment to the University. Last year’s lecturer was Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment at Yale Law School Jack M. Balkin.
