Jennie Bradley LictherCatholic Law's Center for Law and the Human Person hosted the final installment of its 2023-2024 Faith-in-Action lecture series on Tuesday, March 19. The series, which brings Catholic lawyers to discuss the integration of the Catholic faith and legal practice, concluded with Catholic University’s deputy general counsel, Jennie Bradley Licther, who gave a talk on “Ten Tips for Living and Lawyering Authentically.”

Before her arrival at Catholic University, Lichter—a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, the University of Cambridge, and Harvard Law School—served as in-house counsel for the Archdiocese of Washington, counsel at the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Policy, and in the White House as Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council. Lichter discussed ten methods that she has used in her career to maintain and deepen her Catholic faith. She repeatedly emphasized the importance of always pursuing the morally correct course of action, reminding the audience that even the most difficult decision may in fact be the most simple when it is the only moral one.

Lichter’s remarks were followed by a Q&A.

The Faith-in-Action lecture series seeks to provide students with living examples of legal experts who bear witness to living their faith through a vocation to law. Among the Center’s other initiatives are the reading group Tolle et Lege and the Annual Spring Symposium. “Freedom and Truth,” the second Annual Spring Symposium, will be held at Catholic Law the afternoon of Thursday, April 4, and will feature as its keynote speaker Grove City College’s Carl R. Trueman, Professor of Biblical & Religious Studies. More information about this event is available here.
