In a career marked by famous dissenting opinions, one of Justice Scalia’s most famous dissents was his departure from modern conventional wisdom in legal education. And, as with so many of his dissents, he reveled in the act. “I go to law schools just to make trouble,” he once told an academic audience in Brazil. “I give lectures and stir up the students. It takes several weeks for their professors to put them back on track.”
