21st Annual Mirror of Justice Lecture: Catholic Legal Education

Description:  John Garvey, president of The Catholic University of America and also a member of the faculty of the Columbus School of Law discussed the ways in which a Catholic legal education differs from those offered by secular law schools. President Garvey used the occasion to extoll the virtues of a legal education informed by Catholic economic teachings and social ideals, such as the Church’s preferential option for the poor. The annual lecture series is co-sponsored by The Pope John Paul II Guild of Catholic Lawyers.
