The Institute for Religion, Law and Lawyer’s Work at Fordham University School of Law is hosting an inaugural lecture on its new series, “Pope Francis: the First Year.” The panel discussion will be held at Fordham Law School on October 14 and RSVPs are required by October 10:
The papacy of Pope Francis has captivated the world. According to Time Magazine’s Nancy Gibbs, “Rarely has a new player on the world stage captured so much attention so quickly—young and old, faithful and cynical—as has Pope Francis. He has placed himself at the very center of the central conversations of our time: about wealth and poverty, fairness and justice, transparency, modernity, globalization, the role of women, the nature of marriage, the temptations of power.”
Fordham Law School’s Institute on Religion, Law and Lawyer’s Work is introducing a new series on Pope Francis and his contribution to religious, policy, and legal conversations. On Oct 14, 2014, the inaugural program in the series will focus on Pope Francis’s first year as leader of the Catholics in the world.
