Charles Barkley: Constitutional Law Scholar


Since this is the Supreme Court issue of Coverage Opinions it makes sense to share a constitutional law secret that rivals what goes on at the Justices’s conferences.

In the Spring of 1989, the night before my Con Law final, I exited my apartment building in Center City Philadelphia and set off for the library. Within seconds I found myself face-to-face with Charles Barkley. I instinctively said hello and Sir Charles greeted me back. I asked him for an autograph and he was happy to oblige. I sensed that the Round Mound of Rebound was in a rush. So I acted quickly and handed him the first thing I could find for him to sign. This happened to be my Con Law casebook. Charles opened the cover and autographed the inside cover – just as the author would.

Charles Barkley is many things. Add one more to the list: constitutional law scholar.
