  • The Dignity of Politics

Cosponsored by the Catholic Lawyers Guild of Chicago and Jenner & Block, LLP

A panel discussion featuring James R. Stoner and respondents Justice Mary Jane Theis, Dan Cronin, and Larry Suffredin.

A dynamic society accords respect to political activities and the choice of a career in politics, and it needs to do so for society to thrive. Politics is held in low repute today, breeding contempt for the day-to-day activities of citizens and politicians involved in the making of law and public policy. Self-government is a great achievement; both rare and fragile, it is only achieved by the virtue of those who participate in it. Contempt for politics and politicians imperils our republic by dissuading virtuous men and women from assisting in the making of law and public policy.
