On the evening of November 7, Lawrence J. Morris, Chief of Staff and Counselor to the President of The Catholic University of America, delivered the 2019 Mirror of Justice Lecture entitled, “War Crimes, Justice, and the National Interest.”

The audience was welcomed with a prayer and opening remarks from Alexander Hamilton (3L), President of the Saint John Paul II Guild of Catholic Lawyers. Hamilton offered a reflection on the namesake of the award and how Mary came to be a reflection of justice. He shared that each year the Guild, “picks a faculty member who reflects virtue, grace, and mercy in their vocation.” Hamilton then outlined Mr. Morris’ career in the military and at Catholic University and welcomed him to speak.
