Missouri Events

Next week, I will be in Missouri for six events, with a total expected attendance in the tens of thousands: one breakfast event and three lunchtime events on Scalia Speaks, along with two MLB games:

On Tuesday, April 24, I will address the Kansas City lawyers chapter of the Federalist Society. (Info here.) That evening, I will watch the Royals play the Brewers.

On Wednesday, April 25, I will speak to the University of Missouri law school’s student chapter of the Federalist Society. (Info here.) That evening, after completing my I-70 trek across the state, I will cheer for the Cardinals against the Mets.

On Thursday, April 26, I have a private breakfast event and then will speak to the St. Louis lawyers chapter of the Federalist Society. (Info here.)
