Natural Law Lecture

-

Location: Room 1140

Lecture on Life, Death and Human Rights
Lecture by Patrick Lee, Franciscan University of Steubenville, will deliver a lecture titled: “Moral Status and the Margins of Human Life”

In this lecture Lee will defend the position that the basis for being a subject of rights is having a rational nature, and that every human being has a rational nature—a radical capacity for rational acts, including deliberate choices to shape one’s life. Objections concerning the boundaries of life, including brain death, will be considered, and the position that human embryos and severely cognitively impaired human beings are subjects of rights, defended. In the course of his lecture Lee will take up and resolve the question: when/under what circumstances is a person dead?

Natural Law Lecture

-

Location: Room 1315

Prof. Mark Murphy, Georgetown Law School will deliver the lecture “Some Unhappy Dilemmas for Natural Law Jurisprudence.”

Recently, critics of natural law jurisprudence have tried to undermine the prospects for this account of law’s nature without having to confront the central arguments for the natural law view. Instead, these critics have argued that the very task of trying to provide an account of law’s nature is wrongheaded, or that even if law does have a nature, any interpretation of the natural law account is doomed to be either hopelessly implausible or indistinguishable from its positivist rivals. In this lecture I will formulate these challenges as dilemmas for natural law jurisprudence, and show how natural law theorists can escape them.

Symposium on Limiting Shareholder Rights: Entrenching Management or Establishing Commitments?

Location: Eck Hall of Law

At this symposium, some new results challenging this interpretation are presented and discussed. If shareholders have limited information and limited commitment to the firm, this may threaten firms engaged in long-term projects and firms dependent on long-term relationships with other stakeholders.…
