Given John Paul II's significant presence on the world stage, it is appropriate to ask what his impact might be on particular fields of inquiry or professional vocations. As lawyers, then, we might ask: what were John Paul II's thoughts on the nature of law and jurisprudence? What will be his legacy in terms of the civil law? How can we, as civil lawyers, best mine the rich lode of his intellectual legacy? To begin to answer these questions and to suggest a way forward under the guidance of John Paul II, it is fitting that the Notre Dame Journal of Law, Ethics & Public Policy should publish a symposium issue to honor him and to explore his influence on the law.
