Amos 5; Zechariah 7; Matthew 12:15-21; Romans 3:21-31, 13:1-7.
The title of the book we are using is "The Advocate: A Biblical Approach
to Legal Ethics," written by Mary S. Lauchli, an associate professor of
law at Pepperdine University School of Law. This study is an introduction
to legal ethics from a biblical perspective and it seeks to prepare students
to face tough ethical issues in the legal world.
