Location: 1st Floor Danna Student Center

At Camp WeHaKee we are very proud of our tradition of building girls’ confidence and independence while developing relationships with others from all over the world!

Working at WeHaKee is more than just doing a job. It’s about joining a family that shares the same goals, goes the extra mile and always puts the needs of the girls above individual needs. And it’s these values that shape our camp work in everything we do, every day.

As a family, our sense of sharing goes further too. Everyone’s welcome and we look after each other treating people fairly, with dignity and respect, and encouraging our staff members to realize their full potential, by giving of themselves for others, trying new things and recognizing others’ gifts and talents.

If this sounds like the right place for you, come by the table in the Danna Center and speak with the Camp Directors

Dead Man Walking: At the intersection of law, art and the death penalty

Time: 4 pm to 7 pm

Contact: M. Isabel Medina · medina@loyno.edu · 504-861-5655

Location: College of Law, Room 308

Cost: Attendees much purchase a ticket to the opera. Get Tickets

This program, planned to coincide with the New Orleans premiere by the New Orleans Opera of the Dead Man Walking on Friday, March 4, 2016 at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre for the Performing Arts, explores the intersection of art and law specifically in the context of the death penalty.

In 1993, Sister Helen Prejean’s book, Dead Man Walking:  An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty, brought national attention to the death penalty, in particular, as it was practiced in Louisiana.  Two years later, the book was made into an award-winning film.  In 2000, the book was the basis for an opera first presented by the San Francisco Opera, composed by Jake Heggie with libretto by Terrence McNally.  The opera has been performed in Australia, Canada, Dresden, Germany, Vienna, Austria, and Sweden and throughout the United States. 

During this period of time, the United States Supreme Court has considered challenges to some aspects of the death penalty throughout the United States, including Louisiana.  The law on the death sentence has developed incrementally, with the Court increasingly open to enforcing limitations on capital sentencing schemes and in particular on the categories of individuals who may be subject to the death penalty.  This symposium brings together author Sister Helen Prejean, artistic director of the New Orleans Opera Robert Lyall and others to explore the evolution of the death penalty, the lived experiences on death row, and the powerful impact that literary works and other art forms may have on the development of law.

Free and open to the public.  Participants who wish to receive CLE credit must purchase a ticket to the New Orleans Opera production of Dead Man Walking, Friday, March 4 and Sunday, March 6 (matinee).  The symposium has been submitted for approval for accreditation of 2.8 CLE credit hours by the MCLE Committee in Louisiana.
