MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) – Longtime U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is scheduled to speak to students at Wesleyan University.

The conservative justice is set to speak Thursday as part of the university’s annual Hugo Black Lecture that focuses on freedom of expression and First Amendment issues.

Black was a long-serving justice on the Supreme Court, nominated by President Franklin Roosevelt, and known for his strong defense of the right of free speech.

Scalia also is scheduled to meet with students at Wesleyan’s Constitutional law courses.

Scalia is the longest-serving Supreme Court justice after 25 7years on the bench. He was nominated by President Ronald Reagan in 1986.
