CIT Announces Its Spring 2023 Speakers Program

Catholic Law’s Project on Constitutional Originalism and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition (CIT) announced on January 3, 2023, its lineup of speakers for the spring 2023 semester. This will be the second semester of CIT’s speakers program, a core component of CIT.

Continuing its successful model from the fall 2022 speakers program, CIT will host approximately half of its events on campus and half of its events at D.C.-area think tanks. This will allow CIT’s programming — which is primarily directed to legal scholars and law students — to reach a broader audience and bring more people into a conversation about the relationship between the Catholic intellectual tradition and American constitutionalism. Programming will consist of seven events, including events co-sponsored with The Brookings Institution, Notre Dame’s Center for Citizenship & Constitutional Government, The Heritage Foundation, and The Catholic Information Center.

The spring speakers program will explore topics such as the relationship between positive law and constitutional theory, the future of liberalism, the role of tradition in constitutional law, and other topics of theology, constitutional law, and philosophy.
