Before a sizable crowd of lawyers and law students at Kennedy Center’s Concert Hall, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and co-author Bryan Garner held forth on Friday in what had to be one of the most unusual continuing legal education courses of all time.

“I’ve always wanted to be center stage at the Concert Hall,” Scalia said, although he confessed he prefers the adjacent Opera House. Self-effacingly, Scalia said the daylong course was likely to be “the dullest act” the hall had ever hosted, except for atonal music concerts that might have taken place there.
