If you’ve ever fancied the idea of voting against Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia (or for him, for that matter) your chance will come on Friday. That’s when Scalia and author Bryan Garner will conduct an extraordinary five-hour Continuing Legal Education course based on their new book, “Making Your Case: The Art of Persuading Judges.”
Seats are still available for the Kennedy Center event in Washington, D.C., where the two will offer advice from the book, leavened with video clips of judges and other Supreme Court justices offering insights (go to www.lawprose.org to register).
Law students will be able to attend for free. The $600 enrollment fee will be waived for any law student with a valid, current student identification, says Garner. And no advance sign-up is needed; just show up by 9:30 a.m. with the ID, and you’ll be admitted for a balcony seat. Only paying customers will get a copy of the book.
Part of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Legal Aid Society, says Garner. For more information on the event, go to Garner’s Web site.
