The Thomistic Institute exists to promote Catholic truth in the contemporary world by strengthening the intellectual formation of Christians at universities, in the Church, and in the wider public square. To that end, we invite intellectuals to discuss matters of faith and law, politics, or culture. While the Yale Law School Thomistic Institute is small, we welcome new members and encourage any interested students to contact Garrett West (edward.g.west@yale.edu) or Albert Horsting (albertus.horsting@yale.edu). Congratulations on your admission, and welcome to Yale Law School. We hope to hear from you soon.
