Franciscan University to offer continuing education
STEUBENVILLE — The Center for Criminal Justice, Law, and Ethics at Franciscan University of Steubenville will hold two continuing legal education courses for law professionals covering topics on law, ethics, virtue and war and peace.
In “The Law of Armed Conflict, Genocide, and Other War Crimes,” Kevin Govern, professor of law at Ave Maria School of Law, will examine the ethical, legal and moral implications of the law of armed conflict, giving attendees an invaluable perspective on historical and contemporary events in the United States, Ukraine, the Middle East and around the world.
The course will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 9. Registration is $149, or $99 for non-lawyers who are not earning CLE credit, and includes a light breakfast and lunch.
In “Aquinas: Virtue, the Natural Law, and Modern Problems,” Charles P. Nemeth, director of Franciscan’s Criminal Justice Program and author of several books on Thomas Aquinas, will discuss how law relates to virtue, what the ultimate aim of a law is and how legal decisions can habituate citizenry in either virtue or vice.
The course will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 28. Registration is $149, or $99 for non-lawyers who are not earning CLE credit, and includes a light breakfast and lunch.
Both courses will be held at Franciscan University. To register online or learn more, visit centerforcriminaljustice.com.
