Frank G. Raichle Lecture Series

Not many college students can say they met a Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court or a U.S. Attorney General. But students in Canisius’ pre-law program have this privilege thanks to the Frank G. Raichle Lecture Series. Some of the most renowned figures in American law visit Canisius under the auspices of this lecture series.  Past speakers include U.S. Supreme Court justices, U.S. attorney generals and U.S. senators, many of whom spend the day at Canisius.  They host classes for students or meet with them during private receptions.
