This quarter, I am teaching a course called "Law and the Catholic Social Tradition." (I posted the syllabus here, a few days ago.) What I thought would be a small seminar has grown quite a bit; it looks like we'll have about 30 in the "seminar."
On Tuesday, Chicago's archbishop, Cardinal George, was generous enough to join us for dinner at the Law School, and to share his thoughts on the Compendium generally, and the "CST and the law thing" more generally. On Wednesday, we had our first meeting, and I am excited and optimistic about the class. The students are a very diverse and, it appears, engaged group. I suspect that I will be sharing some of their thoughts with MOJ readers in the weeks to come, so stay tuned. . . .
