In December, the Center for Law and Religion at St. John's University School of Law in Queens, N.Y., announced creation of its Tradition Project, which will explore the value of tradition for contemporary citizens and the relationship of tradition and change in today's world. 

Conceived and co-directed by professors Marc O. DeGirolami and Mark L. Movsesian, the Tradition Project will seek to develop a broad and rich understanding of what tradition -- the received wisdom of the past -- might continue to offer in cultivating virtuous, responsible, self-governing citizens.

"The Tradition Project, which studies issues of intellectual and religious concern, furthers our mission as a Vincentian institution," according to law-school dean Michael A. Simons.  "We're grateful to the Bradley Foundation for its support of this important initiative."

The project will bring together leading public figures, scholars, judges, and journalists for lectures, workshops, and sponsored research.  Its work will result in book manuscripts, journal articles, and curricular development.
