Mary Ann Glendon is the Learned Hand Professor of Law at Harvard University. She is the former U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See (the Vatican), and has been president of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences since 2004. She currently serves as a member of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom.

Glendon writes and teaches in the fields of human rights, comparative law, constitutional law, and political theory. She is also a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the International Academy of Comparative Law, and a past president of the UNESCO-sponsored International Association of Legal Science. She served two terms as a member of the U.S. President’s Council on Bioethics (2001-2004).

Professor Glendon’s speech, Comparative Law in the Age of Globalization, will form the basis for a special issue of the Duquesne Law Review in which nationally prominent scholars will contribute to the debate and discussion on this timely issue. We look forward to seeing you on September 24 at the Murray Excellence in Scholarship Lecture, an important event that will continue to elevate the stature of Duquesne University School of Law within the national community of legal scholars.
