An article published by Suffolk University Law Review was cited twenty-four times in various briefs and court documents filed in the United States Supreme Court in the matter of Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins. The article, Antonin Scalia, The Doctrine of Standing as an Essential Element of the Separation of Powers, 17 Suffolk U. L. Rev. 881, 885 (1983), is a revised version of Justice Scalia’s remarks at the Ninth Donahue Lecture at Suffolk University Law School and can be found by clicking the link below.
While sitting for the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, Justice Scalia took the time to speak with the Suffolk University Law School community about the relationship between the doctrine of standing and the separation of powers. Now, thanks to the work of our alumni and faculty, Justice Scalia’s lecture has been considered by parties in the United States Supreme Court. Justice Scalia’s lecture, held in March of 1983, was part of the Donahue Lecture Series, an annual series of lectures hosted by Suffolk University Law Review. This year’s lecture series begins on November 12, 2015, when New York Times Bestselling Author, James Bamford, will join Suffolk University Law Review for a discussion on Espionage, Eavesdropping, Edward Snowden and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
We are thrilled to see the work of our alumni pay dividends for Suffolk University Law Review over thirty years later. And we look forward to having this year’s lectures and publications be considered by future academics and advocates.
