Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia had been the longest-serving member of the country’s highest court when he died earlier this year.

For three decades, he was also a reliably conservative voice on the court — and the champion of trying to interpret the constitutionality of laws based on the intent of the Founding Fathers.

Kevin Walsh, a professor at the University of Richmond School of Law, served as one of Justice Scalia’s law clerks.

He’ll be at the National Constitution Center Monday evening where Walsh and two of the Justice’s other law clerks will be discussing Antonin Scalia’s legacy.
