March 4, 2015 - 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. His topic is "Religion and Social Coherentism: A Progressive Theory of Religious Freedom." The lecture will be held on Wednesday, March 4, 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. Additional details may be found in the Event Flyer. 2015 McElroy Lecture Press Release Register for Lecture Online
