Justice Scalia is coming to my law school on Monday. They're holding a raffle to see who gets to speak with him; out of 600-ish students on campus, only a handful of us get to go throughout the day, and I'll find out on Friday if I'm one. More than a few of us are conspiring to ask him a few questions if we can; however, we're all aware of a few things going into it:
- The Hon. Antonin Scalia is many things we don't like, but stupid isn't one of them. If we have an opportunity to ask him a question, it's doubtful that any old saw lazily hurled his way will strike well.
- Each group of students is small, and it's a small campus to begin with. Not only do we typically prefer to conduct ourselves civilly as a matter of ethics, just throwing out heckling questions will likely have a very poor impact on our future careers.
These things said: what should we ask him, if one of us is chosen?
I'm only a first-year (as are most of my friends), so I don't really have a great depth of legal questions to challenge him with just yet, but I can try to bone up on specific ones if people point me to things.
