McElroy Lecture


On Wednesday, March 4, the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law presented a lecture by Nelson Tebbe (center) of Brooklyn and Cornell Law Schools as part of its annual McElroy Lecture Series on Law and Religion. Tebbe spoke on “Religion and Social Coherentism: A Progressive Theory of Religious Freedom.” In February of 1998, UDM Law began the McElroy Lecture Series to address prominent issues of religion, law, and society. The school is able to sponsor this event due to a bequest from one of its graduates, Philip J. McElroy, to establish the Center of Law and Religion at UDM Law. Posing with Tebbe by a portrait of Philip J. McElroy were (l-r) UDM Law Associate Professor Bret Boyce, UDM Law Dean Phyllis Crocker, UDM Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs Pam Zarkowski, and UDM Law Assistant Professor Kyle Langvardt.
