INQUIES PRO LEGE
Inquies Summer Course for Law Students 2014
Inquies is Latin for restlessness. It was originally used by Universitas, a group of scholars and leaders, to signify its members’ unrelenting search for the truth, under the principle that long-term solutions to our country’s problems have to be well thought-out and firmly grounded on respect for virtue and the natural law.
“As we shall have more than ample opportunity to see in the course of this history, even the best political structure is of very little value without public and private moral virtue and respect for the natural law.” –Warren H. Carrol
THE FIRST SUMMER COURSE
The idea of the first summer course was inspired by the group of renowed literary giants, JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis, at Oxford called The Inklings. It was a literary discussion group which has changed the world of literature. The organizers hope that Inquies will help change the world that affects the youth and consequently, our society.
