The James Wilson Institute on Natural Rights and the American Founding

4x – Senior Seminar Sponsors $10,000

Provide for the needs of our Senior Seminars, which gather judges and experts together to educate one another in the natural law, over the course of a weekend. These seminars take up substantive current issues to discuss how they can be seen and understood better through the lens of a natural law jurisprudence.


Prof. Robert Miller of University of Iowa Law School: "These seminars are the most important conferences that I attend."


Prof. Daniel Mark of Villanova Law School: “Having a community that comes together on a regular basis is really valuable for the project because it means that we can make intellectual progress. It’s not as though we start from scratch each time.”
