Nashville and Houston Events on Scalia Speaks

In addition to a lunchtime event on Monday at a leading D.C. law firm, I’ll be traveling to Nashville and Houston next week for five Scalia Speaks events:

On Tuesday, March 20, at lunchtime, I’ll be at Vanderbilt for an event sponsored by the law school’s Federalist Society chapter.

On Tuesday evening, I’ll speak to the Nashville lawyers chapter of the Federalist Society.

On Wednesday, March 21, at lunchtime, I’ll discuss the book with the Houston lawyers chapter of the Federalist Society.

That evening, I’ll speak to the Thomas More Society of Galveston-Houston.

And on Thursday, March 22, at lunchtime, I’ll address the Federalist Society’s student chapter at the South Texas College of Law. (Contrary to what the link says, the event is at 1:00 local time.)
