The Saint Vincent College Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Series continued Aug. 25 with a presentation to 40 area attorneys in the Luparello Lecture Hall in the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion.

Saint Vincent College associate professor of philosophy Eugene V. Torisky gave a talk on John Rawls in American Jurisprudence. Rawls, a major figure in 20th century political theory, expounded many theories that reflect basic principles of the American legal system.

Elise Glenn, director of Saint Vincent College’s trial advocacy and intercollegiate moot court program, spoke on legal ethics, focusing on the demands of truth and candor toward the court.

Bruce Antkowiak, counsel to the College and Archabbey, director of the criminology, law and society program and professor of law at Saint Vincent, also presented on the faith the legal system places in process in discovering truth and finding justice.

The CLE Series is offered at a nominal charge to lawyers and is free to members of the public.
