Scalia and the Rule of Law

This week we’re reading a piece by the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, called, “The Rule of Law as a Law of Rules.” In this text, Scalia focuses on delineating the difference between the “general rule of law” and “personal discretion to do justice.” Where do we draw the line between blindly following the law and following one’s conscious in matters of social justice? Sure to be a great and timely topic.

Remember to bring a three dollar donation for the Setauket Community House.
