Abstract

The text of the 1996 “Mirror of Justice” lecture at the Catholic University of America, this article explores the potential - and the limitations - of law as a tool for achieving justice. Drawing heavily on principles of Catholic social thought, it also considers the various ways in which “justice” may be defined.
