Communion and Law
We are a group of legal professionals committed to exploring how relationships of fraternity may be built among the various actors in legal systems and how this in turn may contribute to a culture in which rights are fully protected and people discover the full potential of human relationships.
Based on this commitment, we have begun to consider how the practice and concept of fraternity can make a difference in the practical application of the law and in reflection on the theoretical underpinnings of jurisprudence. Persons from all facets of the legal profession are involved with this cultural project, including: judges, lawyers, public administrators and officials, scholars and students.
Our reflection draws on the work and benefits from the varied perspectives of professionals across Europe and in several countries of South America, North America, Asia and Africa.
Our approach and activities are informed by the spirituality of communion of the Focolare Movement, founded by Chiara Lubich.
