Justice Antonin Scalia : Jurisprudence, Impact & Supreme Court Vacancy Hardback
Edited by Vanessa Shaw
On 13 February 2016, Justice Antonin Scalia passed away unexpectedly at the age of 79, vacating a seat on the Supreme Court which he had held for nearly 30 years.
Justice Scalias lengthy tenure on the Court, coupled with his strongly held views on how constitutional and statutory texts are to be interpreted, led him to have significant influence on the development of the jurisprudence of various areas of law.
This book discusses Justice Scalias jurisprudence on key areas of law, as well as how that jurisprudence could be seen to have influenced the Courts approach to these subject matters.
This book also provides an overview of the Supreme Courts procedural rules and requirements when the Court is staffed with less than nine members; and answers to frequently asked legal questions about filling Supreme Court vacancies.
