Abstract

Moving in the Right Dimension means that Christian lawyers should do justice (never end the quest for curbing destructive and unfair behavior), love kindness (seek to remove the mask of individual and corporate self-interest to respond fairly to the interests of others), and walk humbly with our God (avoid legal and moral self-righteousness) in our everyday callings.
