This book is an eloquent call to restore the element of sacredness to the legal profession. Utilizing an inspirational writing style, it examines the practice and teaching of law through a spiritual lens. It not only identifies the spiritual challenges that the profession faces, but offers concrete and theoretical alternatives than can be embraced and pursued. Through the use of metaphors that capture the difference between the attorney personality and the lawyer’s soul, this book seeks to inspire the imagination and spirit of lawyers instead of regulating their actions.
