OXFORD — Two U.S. Supreme Court justices are scheduled to speak at the University of Mississippi.
Justices Antonin Scalia and Elena Kagan will speak Monday at a session hosted by the Ole Miss law school. The session will be moderated by law school Associate Dean Jack Nowlin, a constitutional law professor.
Though Scalia generally sides with conservatives on the court and Kagan generally sides with liberals, the two have built a friendship around hunting. Kagan has said that during her confirmation process, she received many questions about hunting and asked Scalia to teach her. Kagan said during a talk at Princeton University in November that she and Scalia would come to Mississippi in December, in part, to hunt ducks.
Scalia has spoken at least three times at the University of Southern Mississippi.
