From the Foreword to V. 1:
"The following pages contain the lectures delivered at The First Natural Law Institute which convened at the College of Law of the University of Notre Dame on December 12th and 13th, 1947. This meeting was probably the first gathering in modem times by members of the legal profession for the primary purpose of considering the natural law.
Participating in the First Natural Law Institute were Clarence E. Manion, Dean of the College of Law; Reverend William J. Doheny, C.S.C., of the College of Law, former Procurator and Advocate of the Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura and of the Sacred Roman Rota; Mr. Mortimer Adler, Professor of the Philosophy of Law, University of Chicago; Mr. Harold R. McKinnon, of the San Francisco Bar; and Mr. Ben W. Palmer, of the Minneapolis Bar."
