2017-18 Center for Respectful Discourse Series

Loyola University Chicago School of Law has emerged as a center of discourse where the nation’s thought leaders gather to engage in respectful dialogue about new and pressing issues related to law and justice.  In the past year alone, prominent jurists—including U.S. Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Samuel Alito—lawyers, policy-makers, prestigious scholars, and best-selling authors have come to Loyola to share their knowledge and insights.

Unless otherwise noted, all programs listed below will be held in the Power Rogers & Smith Ceremonial Courtroom at the Philip H. Corboy Law Center, 25 E. Pearson Street, Chicago.
