Rev. Robert J. Araujo, S.J. was a beloved member of the School of Law faculty and the inaugural holder of the John Courtney Murray, S.J. University Professorship. He was a dedicated teacher, a devoted priest, and a good friend to many at Loyola.
Father Araujo received both his BA and his JD from Georgetown University. He later continued his legal studies at Columbia University where he received both an LLM and an SJD. He also earned degrees from the Weston Jesuit School of Theology (MDiv and STL) and Oxford University (BCL). An accomplished scholar, Father Araujo was the author of several books and numerous articles on natural law philosophy, statutory interpretation, international law, and Jesuit education.
In addition to holding various teaching positions at Loyola University Chicago, Gonzaga University, St. Louis University, Fordham University, and Boston College, he also served as Permanent Observer and Attaché and Legal Observer for the Holy See to the United Nations.
Father Araujo passed away in October 2015. To honor his memory, a number of his friends and former colleagues prepared a collection of essays that have now been published as a book, Priests, Lawyers, and Scholars (Franciscan Univ. Press 2018).
Please join us for a panel discussion to celebrate Father Araujo's life and the publication of the book.
