Eugene Scalia Bio:
Born into a legacy of law and order, as the son of late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, Eugene Scalia has dedicated his life to labor and employment law. With a rich educational background from the University of Virginia and the University of Chicago Law School, Scalia brings a wealth of knowledge and real-world experience to our stage. Scalia has been a tireless defender of American businesses and hardworking Americans in the face of government overreach. As a former special assistant to Attorney General William Barr and a partner at the prestigious law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, he has been an effective advocate for deregulation and the rule of law.
He previously served as the Solicitor of Labor under President George W. Bush, where he first showcased his prowess in enforcing federal labor laws. His crowning achievement came when he was appointed by President Donald Trump as the Secretary of Labor. From 2019 to 2021, he skillfully navigated the complexities of enforcing federal labor laws, managing workplace safety, wage and hour standards, unemployment insurance benefits, and protecting the pension assets of retirees.
His legacy as a champion of deregulation has set the gold standard for conservative governance. By advocating for reduced government interference, Scalia has shown his commitment to fostering economic freedom, job growth, and prosperity for all Americans. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to hear Eugene Scalia share his unique perspectives drawn from his illustrious career, as well as anecdotes about his father Antonin, one of our greatest Constitutional originalists.
