Justice Alito to teach in Capitals of Europe Program
November 5, 2010
Penn State Law is proud to welcome United States Supreme Court Associate Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., as Distinguished Guest Jurist in the Law School's Capitals of Europe Summer Program from June 21 - July 19, 2010. Justice Alito will be teaching a one-credit course entitled "Current Issues in Constitutional Interpretation." Using recent important cases, the course will exam a variety of challenging issues that have arisen in recent Supreme Court cases. Among these are questions arising under the Second, Fourth, Sixth, and Eighth Amendments, as well as theories of constitutional interpretation and the doctrine of stare decisis.
Justice Alito was nominated to the Supreme Court in 2005. Before that, he served on the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
