Editorial Reviews

Book Description

This book examines moral issues in public and private life from a religious but not devotional perspective. Rather than seeking to prove that one belief system or moral stance is right, it undertakes to help readers more fully understand the effect of religious beliefs and practices on ways of conceiving and addressing moral questions, without having to accept or to reject any specific religious outlook.

About the Author

Howard Lesnick has completed 50 years as a law teacher. Specialized initially in the law of the work relation - labor law, employment discrimination and welfare law - he has served since 1978 as Impartial Umpire under the AFL-CIO 'No-raiding' agreement. He has participated in litigation, training and consultative work related to the legal problems of poor people. He is a founder and past President of the Society of American Law Teachers - a group of law teachers committed to the public responsibilities of the Bar and the law schools - and has worked, with others, to develop methods by which law students, teachers and practitioners can make their work in law more fully integrated with their aspirations and values, and with the motivations that drew them to legal careers. His current teaching interests are religion, law and lawyering; legal responses to inequality; and professional responsibility. In recent years, he has published books and articles on ethical responsibility in law practice, religion and morality, and moral education.

More About the Author

Howard Lesnick has been teaching law for 50 years. He specialized initially in the law relating to work and welfare, writing extensively on labor-management issues and has served since 1978 as Impartial Umpire under the AFL-CIO "No-Raiding" Agrement. He has participated widely in litigation, training, and consultative work related to the legal problems of poor people, including the rights of refugees.

In recent years, he has published several books and many articles on ethical responsibility in law practice, religion and morality, and moral education. His current teaching interests are Religion in Legal Thought and Practice (which is the title of his most recent book); Legal Responses to Inequality; and Professional Responsibility.

He is a founder and Past President of the Society of American Law Teachers -- a group of law teachers committed to the public responsibilities of the Bar and the law schools -- and has worked, with others, to develop methods by which law students, teachers, and practitioners can make their work in law more fully integrated with their aspirations and values, and with the motivations that drew them to legal careers.
