McElroy Lecture on Law and Religion
Our annual McElroy Lecture provides a forum for prominent thinkers and leaders to address fundamental issues of law, religion, and society. It seeks to educate students, legal professionals, and the public on a variety of questions related to moral philosophy, freedom of conscience, the interaction of legal and religious institutions, and the role of religion in public life. Its goal is to encourage discussion of these issues in our community and deepen our understanding of them. This year's lecturer is Professor Nelson Tebbe of Brooklyn Law School. The lecture will be held on Wednesday, March 4, from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m., followed by a complimentary reception in the Atrium of the School of Law.
