Remembering Justice Scalia

This week, Crown Forum released The Essential Scalia: On the Constitution, the Courts, and the Rule of Law. Edited by Judge Jeffrey S. Sutton and Edward Whelan, and with a foreword by Justice Elena Kagan, this is the third posthumous collection of Justice Scalia’s speeches, writings, and decisions.

To mark this occasion, Law & Liberty commissioned two reviews of the book:
