Law and morality are inherently intertwined. Those involved in the practice of law should be encouraged to consider how the unchanging moral imperatives of the natural law should affect a lawyer’s approach to the practice of law.  This seminar, based upon Leslie Griffin, Law and Religion: Cases and Materials (2007), provides attendees with a deep appreciation for the origins of law and an understanding of moral and intellectual principles germane to the American legal system.
