Every summer the Witherspoon Institute offers a seminar on the Moral Foundations of the Law, open to rising 2L and 3L students in law school, as well as those in LLM and JSD programs (and we’ve been known to have students in the seminar studying jurisprudence in other disciplines, like political theory and philosophy).  In recent years we have welcomed record numbers of international students, which has really enriched the experience.  This year the seminar meets August 4 to 8 on the campus of Princeton University.  Under the general direction of Prof. Gerard V. Bradley of the University of Notre Dame Law School, the seminar will feature Profs. John M. Finnis (Oxford and Notre Dame), Robert P. George (Princeton), Adam MacLeod (Faulkner University), and yours truly.  For more information and how to apply, go here.

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
