In recent years, legislatures and courts across the United States have been asked to address conflicts between civil rights and religious liberties. In Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, the Supreme Court upheld a closely-held corporation’s right not to provide health insurance coverage for contraceptives that violate the sincerely-held religious beliefs of the company’s owners. In the past year, federal and state courts have rejected the objections of bakers, photographers, and county clerks who have refused to serve same-sex couples on religious grounds, while state legislatures have considered various proposals to protect civil rights and religious liberties.
To many observers, these cases present fundamental conflicts between equality and freedom. Is this framework valid? How can these cases be addressed? Is new legislation necessary, or does the Constitution already provide sufficient safeguards for the protection of civil rights and religious liberties? Can legislatures find live-and-let live solutions that protect both values?
Please join us on Wednesday, October 7, as two of the nation’s leading experts explore this timely topic. Luke Goodrich is Deputy General Counsel of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, a nonprofit law firm that has successfully litigated several religious freedom cases before the Supreme Court. Mary Anne Case is the Arnold I. Shure Professor of Law at the University of Chicago Law School, and a prominent scholar of the legal regulation of sexuality, gender, and sex. In this year’s Fordham Debate, Mr. Goodrich and Professor Case will debate the following statement: “Conflicts between civil rights and religious liberties can be addressed by adopting viable compromise solutions that protect both sides.”

The Millennial Generation, those roughly 87 million men and women born between 1980 and 1997, now represent one-quarter of the U.S. population. With those on the leading edge of Millennials now hitting their mid-thirties, this cohort is becoming increasingly influential. Trevor Thrall will present findings from his recent study, arguing that the end of the Cold War, 9/11, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have imprinted Millennials with a distinct pattern of foreign policy attitudes. Millennials perceive the world to be significantly less threatening than do their elders and are more likely than earlier generations to support international cooperation than the unilateral use of military force.
In addition to being an author, Trevor Thrall, currently is an associate professor at George Mason University in the School of Policy, Government, and International Affairs and the Director of the Graduate Program in Biodefense. He is also an Adjunct Scholar at the Cato Institute and teaches courses in international security, political communication, and U.S. military intervention.

At the broadest level, the Symposium seeks to explore the longstanding question of how law and legal institutions impact entrepreneurial activities. More specifically, we plan to focus on how innovations in intellectual property law and securities law are shaping the modern face of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial capital raising. The Symposium will bring together lawyers and legal academics working in the area, as well as venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and business scholars. We hope the Symposium sparks a dialogue among these groups, better enabling academics to incorporate the state-of-the-art in entrepreneurship into their scholarship and practitioners to incorporate theoretical and empirical insights from academic research into their work.

Official Washington and media are gripped with a bad case Russophobia, locked in a forty year old stereotypes and policies of the old Cold War and determined to ignite a new one. We are led to believe that there is no diversity, independence or anything neither good nor original going on in Russia today. The truth is far more complex and we urgently need a broader prospective. Suzanne Massie’s lecture will address some of the important facts ignored about Russia and the Russian people today that we need to know about.
Suzanne Massie author, specialist and lecturer on Russian culture and history for over forty years, was called on by Ronald Reagan to advise him on Russian affairs from 1984-88. She is the recipient of many awards, including most recently the Dr. Jean Meyer Global Citizen award from the Tuft University Institute of Global Leadership.
For a generation, some of the money we’ve spent at the gas station and the mall has gone to empower the authoritarians and the armed groups that have given us our worst foreign-born crises. How can we get ourselves out of business with the hostile petrocrats and the violent extremists? Citizens, consumers and politicians can together lead a peaceful global resource revolution, which will make us more secure at home, more trusted abroad, and better able to solve pressing global problems like climate change.
