John F. Scarpa Conference on Law, Politics, and Culture
Start Date: 11/15/2013
End Date: 11/15/2013
Event Description:
The Honorable John T. Noonan, Jr., has served on the United States Court of Appeals since 1986, following a distinguished career in practice and teaching. In a scholarly career spanning more than fifty years, Noonan has written major works, some of them now classics, on a stunningly broad range of topics including usury, bribery, contraception, religious freedom, federalism, professional ethics, marriage and annulment, abortion, and jurisprudence. The conference will explore aspects of many of the topics Noonan has studied, emphasizing the thread that unites all of Noonan’s work: the development of doctrine.
