CGC Faculty Lecture

Wednesday, 02 November, 2016

Henry Ordower, J.D., professor of law, will present "Confessions of a Comparatist," at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 2, in the Center for Global Citizenship, Seminar Room 124.

About the talk, in Ordower's words:
"Colleagues at SLU Law and universities around the country view me as a legal or tax comparatist (although most choose the word “comparativist”). I really like the characterization. It makes me exceptional in some way that others are not. Why anyone would want to be such a thing is anyone’s guess, but I would like to engage you, the attendees at this talk, in an exploration of what makes one a comparatist. Isn’t all scholarship comparative?"
