Speaker - James A. Sonne, Esq.

Topic:  "Dignitatis Humanae in Contemporary American Law"

Almost a half-century ago, the Second Vatican Council observed that religious liberty is a natural and universal human right belonging to all people.  James A. Sonne, director of the nation's only religious liberty clinic at Stanford Law School, will explore whether American law reflects the vision set forth in Dignitatis Humanae and what challenges presently face believers and the lawyers who represent them.

Jim Sonne joined Stanford Law School in 2012 to direct the new Religious Liberty Clinic of the Mills Legal Clinic, the only one of its kind in the country.  Sonne is an experienced teacher and practitioner, with expertise in law and religion issues - particularly in the workplace.  He previously served as an associate professor of law at Ave Maria School of Law, as a labor and employment lawyer for McGuireWoods LLP, and as an appellate lawyer for Horvitz & Levy LLP. Sonne received his BA with honors from Duke University and his JD with honors from Harvard Law School.  He is a former law clerk to Judge Edith Brown Clement of ­­the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
