King’s announces noted author, speaker, and professor, Robert P. George, as Interregnum speaker
NEW YORK—On Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at 8 p.m., The King’s College will welcome Robert P. George to the Union League Club as its keynote speaker for Interregnum.
George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton, is widely regarded as one of the top authorities on legal jurisprudence. He is a member of the President’s Council on Bioethics and formerly served as a presidential appointee to the United States Commission on Civil Rights. He was also a Judicial Fellow at the Supreme Court where he received the Justice Tom C. Clark award, presented annually to a federal career attorney who has achieved excellence in the performance of his duties.
George received a 2005 Bradley Prize for Intellectual and Civic Achievement and the Stanley Kelley, Jr. Teaching Award from Princeton’s Department of Politics. He received his B.A. from Swarthmore College, a J.D. from Harvard University, and his D. Phil from Oxford University.
George has authored several books including, In Defense of Natural Law, Making Men Moral: Civil Liberties and Public Morality, and The Clash of Orthodoxies: Law, Religion and Morality in Crisis. His latest work, Embryo: A Defense of Human Life, has just been published by Doubleday. He has also published numerous book reviews and scholarly articles, including one co-authored with King’s professor David L. Tubbs entitled, The Bad Decision That Started it All.
Throughout the school year, the community of The King’s College reflects on a particular intellectual theme culminating in Interregnum (“break in the kingly reign”), a three day, student-led, all-campus event during which students compete in impromptu speaking competitions, debates, prepared lectures, and an art competition. This year’s theme is “civilization.”
The King’s College is a Christian liberal arts college located in the Empire State Building in New York City.
