Professor Emeritus Robert F. Cochran presented "Why Christian Scholarship? A Conversation with Professor Bob Cochran" for the Harvard Law School Program on Biblical Law and Christian Legal Studies on November 11. 

Via Harvard Law School: 

Prof. Bob Cochran is the Louis D. Brandeis Professor of Law Emeritus at Pepperdine Caruso School of Law and a Senior Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia.

Many of these works expressly address the relationship between Christianity and the law and law practice.
