Not ev­ery­thing is in tur­moil in the aca­demic world. Har­vard Law School an­nounced this week that it has es­tab­lished the An­tonin Scalia Pro­fes­sor­ship of Law, in recog­ni­tion of the “his­toric ten­ure” of the late U.S. Supreme Court Jus­tice An­tonin Scalia, who grad­u­ated from the school in 1960.

“Jus­tice Scalia had a sin­gu­lar im­pact on statu­tory anal­y­sis and le­gal thought. He also had a great love of learn­ing, so it is es­pe­cially mean­ing­ful that he will be hon­ored with a pro­fes­sor­ship that will pro­vide en­dur­ing sup­port for teach­ing and schol­ar­ship at the law school and be­yond,” ob­serves Martha Mi­now, dean of the school and a pro­fes­sor at the cam­pus.

The new pro­fes­sor­ship was en­dowed by the Den­ver­based Con­si­dine Fam­ily Foun­da­tion.

“It is wholly ap­pro­pri­ate that Jus­tice Scalia’s ac­com­plish­ments, in­tel­lec­tual le­gacy, and ded­i­ca­tion to the found­ing prin­ci­ples of the United States Con­sti­tu­tion be rec­og­nized at Har­vard Law School, his beloved alma mater,” says Terry Con­si­dine, a 1971 grad­u­ate of the school who co-founded the foun­da­tion with his wife, Betsy Con­si­dine.
