The Center for Law and the Human Person, a program of The Catholic University Columbus School of Law (Catholic Law), held the spring semester’s first Faith in Action lunchtime discussion on Tuesday, February 13. Entitled “The Truth Shall Set You Free,” the event featured the Rev. Dominic Legge, O.P., a professor of dogmatic theology at the Dominican House of Studies who prior to taking his vows practiced constitutional law as a trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).

This was the first Faith in Action lecture to be introduced by new Center co-director Marc O. De Girolami, St. John Henry Newman Professor of Law, who joined the Catholic Law faculty in January 2024.

The goal of the Faith in Action series, DeGirolami said, is “to expose law students to lawyers in the community, who will discuss living a life of faith.” Fr. Legge opened his remarks with a series of questions emphasizing the intellectual nature of a life of faith—among them, “What is a Catholic lawyer?” He observed that Catholic lawyers should integrate their lives of faith and their professional lives in their allegiance to the truth.
