Adversity Breeds Strength. The Story of Ave Maria Law School

It started in response to scandal. A group of professors at the University of Detroit-Mercy School of Law lost their jobs after protesting a decision to have a pro-abortion judge give the oath of commitment at the end of a school-sponsored Red Mass for lawyers.

Ave Maria Law School was conceived by that group of professors. They drew up a proposal for a new law school and presented it to Legatus founder and chairman Tom Monaghan. The rest isn’t just history. As told by Legatus Magazine, it’s an exciting story about the incredibly difficult task of establishing a faithfully Catholic law school in a secular world, and the very practical decisions and challenges that can make or break a new institution.

Please read the entire story at Legatus Magazine.
