From our founding in the mid 1970’s, and in keeping with our objects and founding principles, CLF has been fuelled by the conviction that, for the Christian lawyer, the practice of law is a vocation: a calling from God. As Christian lawyers, we are heirs to a tradition of legal thought that bears on many of the most pressing legal and constitutional questions facing our profession and the broader community. We believe it is our responsibility to continue to develop that tradition and work with others to determine what justice requires in a free and democratic society.
We believe that as Christians, we are called to proclaim, teach, and live by God’s standards. In so doing, it is imperative that we communicate in a spirit of love and ascribe wholeheartedly to the principle that every individual is created in the image of God and therefore possesses a special dignity. While it is not unreasonable to expect some differences of opinion in such a large and demographically diverse organization as ours, we believe that a cornerstone of the Christian Legal Fellowship is to apply our individual and collective legal skills, knowledge and efforts in a way that best meets our commitment to integrate our Christian faith with the law.
