King Hall Students Visit with Justice Scalia

UCDC Students and Justice ScaliaKing Hall students in the UCDC Law Program had the rare privilege of an intimate meeting with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia at the UC Washington Center on April 15. 

Justice Scalia first spoke to a packed room of undergraduate and law students from the University of California.  Following the large group session, Justice Scalia met separately with a small group of UCDC law students including Jared Voskuhl '13, Kyle Gee '14, and Miles Prince '14. Justice Scalia spoke candidly with the students on a wide range of topics, including the role the Supreme Court should play in the lives of the American people and his definition of judicial activism, and shared a few personal stories about his career.         

This is not the first time UCDC students had the opportunity to meet with a U.S. Supreme Court Justice. Last year, students were paid a visit by Justice Stephen G. Breyer.

The UCDC Law Program is a uniquely collaborative semester-long externship program in Washington, D.C., combining a weekly seminar with a full-time field placement to offer law students an unparalleled opportunity to learn how federal statutes, regulations, and policies are made, changed, and understood in the nation's capital.
