Three justices head to Europe

WASHINGTON (AP) — A number of cases remain undecided but it’s not too soon to be thinking about summer and the plumteaching gigs that come to those on the U.S. Supreme Court.

At least three justices are headed abroad to teach at American law school programs after the court’s term ends in June.

Justice Anthony Kennedy will do his customary stint in Salzburg, Austria, at the University of the Pacific’s McGeorge School of Law, where he is teaching a two-week course on freedom of expression in the United States.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be in Rome for Loyola University Chicago’s summer law program.

Ginsburg will talk about the court and Constitution, while her daughter and law professor Jane Ginsburg will participate in the program’s international art law course.

Justice Neil Gorsuch also will be in Italy, in Padua, where he and his former law clerk, Jamil Jaffer, will team up to teach two courses in national security law for George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School.

Ginsburg was a law professor before joining the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., in 1980.

Kennedy and Gorsuch both taught regularly when they were federal appeals court judges, and Kennedy has spent almost every summer in Salzburg for the past 25 years.
