CIT Announces the 2023-2024 Aquinas Fellows

Catholic University of America’s Project on Constitutional Originalism and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition (CIT) today announced the second class of its Aquinas Fellowship, following a successful inaugural year. The Aquinas Fellowship is a program for young lawyers in the D.C. area that examines the relationship between the Catholic intellectual tradition and American constitutionalism. The program consists of eight monthly seminar-like discussions conducted by leading scholars in the fields of theology, philosophy, and constitutional law. 

This year’s Aquinas Fellowship class features four past or future Supreme Court clerks and clerks from a variety of federal trial and appellate courts. It includes graduates from Yale, the University of Chicago, Duke, the University of Virginia, Georgetown, and Notre Dame, among other schools.
