Yesterday I wrote that the American Constitution Society is forming a chapter in New Mexico, and expressed the hope that it will bring interesting speakers and debates to the Land of Enchantment.
Well, in a double dose of good news, I have learned that the sometimes-dormant New Mexico Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society will host a talk by Ilya Shapiro, Senior Fellow of Constitutional Studies at the Cato Institute, here in Albuquerque on May 12. This event is being co-sponsored by the Rio Grande Foundation.
The title of Mr. Shapiro’s talk is “The Scalia Legacy and the Future of the U.S. Supreme Court.”
This event will take place on Thursday, May 12, 2016, from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m, at the Marriott Pyramid Hotel at 5151 San Francisco Road NE, Albuquerque, NM 87109. You can register for it here. The cost is $30 per person through May 5, and $40 after that.
This is great news. I hope that both the Federalist Society and the ACS will continue to be active and promote the discussion of interesting and controversial legal issues.
