An eminent leader from the Mormon Apostles, Elder Quentin L. Cook, will deliver The University of Notre Dame Australia School of Law Sydney’s Annual Lecture on Religious Liberty, in Sydney on Wednesday 27 May.

Elder Cook is a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, the governing council of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints worldwide.

Hosted by the School of Law Sydney, Professor Michael Quinlan, Dean of the School of Law Sydney, said it was the first time the lecture would be delivered by an expert in the area from overseas with Elder Cook travelling from the United States to attend.

“Religious Liberty is one of the most pressing issues facing the world today, so for this reason four years ago the School of Law, Sydney introduced an Annual Religious Liberty Lecture,” Professor Quinlan said.

“Issues relating to religious tolerance are not exclusive to the Catholic Church and the School seeks expert speakers for this important lecture from around the world and from a range of faith traditions and roles.”

Past speakers have included Brigadier Jim Wallace of the Australian Christian Lobby, His Eminence, Cardinal George Pell, and the Honorable Senator George Brandis, Attorney-General of Australia.

The lecture is open to the public. It will be held from 6pm at the University of Notre Dame, St Benedict’s Building, Room 301, Broadway. For bookings and more information, phone (02) 82044300.
