About Gregory A. Kalscheur, S.J.

Father Kalscheur joined the BC Law faculty in 2003. He received his A.B. in 1985 from Georgetown University, and his J.D. in 1988 from the University of Michigan, where he served on the editorial board of the Michigan Law Review. After law school, he clerked for Judge Kenneth F. Ripple, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, and worked as a litigator at Hogan & Hartson in Washington, D.C.

After entering the Society of Jesus in 1992, Father Kalscheur served as Adjunct Professor of Political Science and Assistant to the Director of the Center for Values and Service at Loyola College in Maryland (1996-98) and as Associate Pastor at St. Raphael the Archangel Church in Raleigh, N.C. (2001-02).

Interdisciplinary dialogue in a setting where faith, intellect, and culture meet is an integral component of Jesuit education, and Father Kalscheur hopes to contribute to that project at BC Law. Jesuit legal education should be an essentially humanistic process of formation for responsible professional service, striving to connect legal inquiry to larger questions of meaning and value, exploring the nature of law as a vocation, and asking how faith and religious values can be integrated with public and professional life.

Father Kalscheur’s primary teaching and research interests include law and religion, constitutional law, civil procedure, Catholic social thought and the law, and the contributions of Ignatian spirituality to the character of legal education at a Jesuit law school.
