rice

God. Country. Notre Dame.

Perhaps no man in recent memory has better embodied the motto inscribed over the door to the Sacred Heart Basilica than Professor Charles E. Rice. A devout Catholic, a Marine, a professor, and a coach, Professor Rice did it all, and always with an abounding sense of humor and purpose. It is therefore with a heavy heart that the Law School announces his passing on February 25, 2015.

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.
