Penn State Law Review presents "Of Hope and Humility"
January 28, 2010
On Thursday, January 28, Penn State Law Review will host the next event in its Scholarly Dialogues series, which provides students with the opportunity to engage with professors concerning recent scholarship.
This dialogue will feature Victor C. Romero, Maureen B. Cavanaugh Distinguished Faculty Scholar and professor of law, as he presents his work, "Of Hope and Humility: Christian Realism, Immigration Reform, and Executive Leadership." Drawing upon President Barack Obama’s admiration of Reinhold Niebuhr’s work, Professor Romero's work outlines a Protestant, Christian realist approach toward immigration policy, with specific focus on the role of the executive in providing providential leadership. He discusses various aspects of such leadership, from negotiating the proper role of states and localities to the promotion of comprehensive immigration reform. Alexis Snyder, managing editor of the Penn State Law Review, will dialogue with Professor Romero about the substance of his article. A question and answer period will follow.
Everyone is cordially invited to attend this event, which will be held from 1:15 to 2:15 p.m. in room 114 (University Park) and simulcast to 114 (Carlisle). Light refreshments will be provided.
Established in 1897, Penn State Law Review is entirely student-run. Published four times annually, it serves as a vehicle for publication of scholarly articles and comments covering all aspects of law, as well as promoting scholarship by enhancing the engagement of its membership with the academic community.
