POSTPONED Moral Truth & Constitutional Conservatism

Out of an abundance of caution for the health of our attendees, our regular bi-annual James Wilson Lecture on April 24 with Prof. Gerard Bradley of Notre Dame Law School is postponed. We hope to reschedule the talk and will provide an update when possible. Thank you!



Gerard V. Bradley is professor of law at the University of Notre Dame, where he teaches Legal Ethics and Constitutional Law. At Notre Dame he directs (with John Finnis) the Natural Law Institute and co-edits The American Journal of Jurisprudence, an international forum for legal philosophy. Bradley has been a visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University, and a senior fellow of the Witherspoon Institute, in Princeton, N.J. He served for many years as president of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars.

Bradley received his B.A and J.D. degrees from Cornell University, graduating summa cum laude from the law school in 1980. After serving in the Trial Division of the Manhattan District Attorney's Office he joined the law faculty at the University of Illinois. He moved to Notre Dame in 1992. Bradley has published over one hundred scholarly articles and reviews. His most recent books are an edited collection of essays titled, Challenges to Religious Liberty in the Twenty-First Century (published by Cambridge University Press in 2012). Cambridge University Press will publish in 2018 a volume of essays on Catholic Social Teaching, co-edited by Bradley.
