We are Canada's national association of Christian lawyers and law students.
As Christian legal professionals, we are heirs to a tradition of legal thought that bears on many of the most pressing legal and constitutional questions facing our culture and profession. Yet we also understand that the practice of law is a vocation: a calling from God. This is a sobering mandate, and we believe it is our responsibility to further develop that tradition and work with others to pursue what justice requires in a free and democratic society.
