Prof. David Skeel (UPenn)
In the West, men and women have often believed that we can achieve true justice in our societies. Those in the East have been more pessimistic. Drawing on his new book, True Paradox, and on recent justice movements in Hong Kong and the U.S., Prof. David Skeel will explore Christianity's radical challenge to both perspectives.
David Skeel is the S. Samuel Arsht Professor of Corporate Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
