Carter, who is the William Nelson Cromwell professor of law at Yale University, is recognized by Time magazine as one of the top 50 leaders for the next century. He has authored seven critically acclaimed nonfiction books on law, ethics and politics, and he has helped shaped national debate ranging from the role of religion in politics to the role of integrity and civility in our daily lives.

He is currently working on a book about the role of human affection in ethical and moral discourse and another book about the intersection between theories of unjust law and theories of unjust war.
