The Founding of the "Prolife Advocacy Center" at the University of St. Thomas School of Law (Minnesota)
The University of St. Thomas Law School is announcing the establishment of its Prolife Advocacy Center on January 22, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Professor Teresa Collett will serve as Director of the Center and Professor Michael Paulsen will serve as Chair of the Board of Advisors to the Center. The center grows out of our commitment to reverse Roe v. Wade, insure legal protection for the lives of all innocent human beings, and stop the international spread of the jurisprudence of death.
At a luncheon in the Law School at 12:30 on January 22 to institute the new center, Professors Collett and Paulsen will speak, along with our Mirror of Justice colleague, Professor Elizabeth Schiltz.
Later that same day, one of the first events of the Center will be a cosponsored lecture by Professor Charles Rice of Notre Dame on how Roe v. Wade has contributed to the death of the founders’ vision of the American republic, a view he outlined in his most recent book, “The Winning Side, Why the Culture of Death is Dying.” Dr. Rice’s expertise is described on his webpage (here). The lecture will be from 3:30 to 4:30 in the Moot Court Room of the Law School, with a reception following. If you’re in the Twin Cities next week, please join us.
