Law & Liberty Lecture Series
The Morris Family Center for Law & Liberty offers free educational lectures to HBU students and the local community. Each lecture series explores the ideas, events, and historic figures that influenced the American Founding.
Join us this year as we explore the lives and motivations of men who traded their lives, liberty, and fortunes for a chance at glory and power. Hear the tales from the Ancient Greeks and Romans that influenced our Founders as well as the stories of the men who worked to undermine the cause of American liberty during the war for Independence.
All lectures are free and open to the public.
