Join us this Tuesday for our next study. We will be discussing the role of a Christian attorney in the administration of justice. The key scripture passages for this lesson are Deuteronomy 16:18-20, 27:19; 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.
