Natural Law Colloquium
The Fordham Natural Law Colloquium was inaugurated in the fall of 2000 through the efforts of Fordham alumnus Gene Harper and Fordham Philosophy Department Chair Dominic Balestra. The Colloquium is jointly sponsored by the Law School and the Philosophy Department, and dedicated to encouraging reflection upon "natural law" reasoning in law, politics, and public discourse. The natural law tradition, derived from Aristotle and Aquinas, is an important part of the University's intellectual heritage, and has been central to Fordham's broader mission as a Jesuit institution of higher education.
