More on Morality and the Law
Last night Justice Scalia shared his views on the relationship of morality to law with a national television audience. Those law students now hooked on the topic should go to the website of the Witherspoon Institute, located next door to Princeton University. The Institute’s new Center on Religion and the Constitution is staging its inaugural Moral Foundations of Law Seminar this coming August 10 -16, in Princeton. The Seminar’s faculty is comprised of John Finnis, holder of Chairs in Law at Oxford and at Notre Dame; Robert George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University; the Honorable Edith Jones, Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit; the Honorable Edith “Joy” Clement, judge of the same court and also a member of the new Center’s Academic Advisory Board; and your correspondent.
