The Catholic Lawyers’ Guild of San Antonio named Professor Robert William “Bill” Piatt president of the guild on Thursday.

Piatt specializes in Catholic legal perspectives and recently saw the second edition of his book, “Catholic Legal Perspectives,” published by the Carolina Academic Press.

Members of the guild include attorneys, judges, clergy, law professors, public officials, paralegals, legal assistants and law students, according to its website.

In the fall, St. Mary’s University will host a Continuing Legal Education organized by the guild and the Christian Legal Society San Antonio Chapter, Piatt said.
