Being a Christian lawyer is possible, but not easy!
^^Law professor Michael Schutt believes that although there are significant obstacles, Christians belong in the legal profession and should regard it as a sacred calling. The Christian God is, after all, a God concerned with justice, both divine and human. However, the pathway beginning with law school and leading to the daily demands of practice doesn't provide much guidance for pursuing law as a Christian calling. Schutt offers this book as a vital resource for reconceiving the theoretical foundations of law and gives practical guidance for maintaining integrity within a challenging profession. A hopeful and practical book for law students and those serving in the legal profession.
Michael P. Schutt (J.D., University of Texas School of Law) is Associate Professor of Law at Regent University, where he has taught since 1993. He is the director of the Institute for Christian Legal Studies (ICLS), a cooperative ministry of the Christian Legal Society and Regent Law School. ICLS seeks to encourage Christian law students, professors, and lawyers to seek and study biblical truth as it relates to law and legal institutions.
Mike also serves InterVarsity Christian Fellowship as the national coordinator of its Law School Ministry. Before joining the Regent law faculty, he practiced law in Fort Worth, Texas. He is an honors graduate of the University of Texas School of Law. He is the author of Redeeming Law: Christian Calling and the Legal Profession.
