Personal Values & the Search for Justice

Religion and Faith

All Are Welcome

We are a Catholic law school where students from all religious traditions explore faith and values within the study of law, ethics, public policy and social justice.

Led by our university’s Office for Mission, we are committed to enabling the spiritual growth of everyone in our community, which includes Catholics, Buddhists, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Protestants, agnostics, atheists and people who are in the process of discovering a faith.

While you are in law school, we invite you to consider how your deepest commitments can and should shape your personal and professional identity and values, and encourage you to take advantage of opportunities for spiritual growth both inside and outside the classroom.

Student at mass

Fellowship and Individual introspection

Daily Reflection Period

The School of Law sets aside 12:00–12:30 p.m. each day as a time of personal reflection. Mass is celebrated at 12 p.m. once each week during the fall and spring semesters. We also offer weekly fellowship gatherings for individuals of all denominations, offer meditation and provide spaces for individual prayer and reflection.

Faith-Based Clubs and Organizations

Among our 35+ student clubs and organizations are several faith-based groups. For example, the Jewish Law Student Association promotes community among Jewish law students and attorneys. The St. Thomas More Society is an association of Catholic law students, lawyers and public servants across the United States.
