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.  This year's lecturer is Professor Kent Greenawalt of Columbia Law School.  The lecture will be held on Wednesday, March 16, from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. in room 226 of the School of Law, followed by a complimentary reception in the atrium. Complimentary parking will be available in the Blue Cross Blue Shield of MI parking garage nearby at 611 Congress Street.
