"I'm fascinated by how the law almost unconsciously inherits and adopts its norms from religious thinking and how it can then turn around and influence religion by pushing back on boundaries."

–Brian Green
JD/MTS 2011

"I chose to pursue a joint degree because I wanted to understand what justice could and should mean from both the practical side (law) but also the theoretical side (religion and ethics). This taught me to ask the questions necessary to help someone but also to listen to what the person really wants and needs--vital skills for my work in public interest law."
