Heights of Justice: Discourse from Boston College Law School
Lawrence A. Cunningham
Carolina Academic Press, 2006 - Law - 609 pages
In this pioneering book, Cunningham arranges selected contributions of his facultys scholarship into a meditation upon justice. The book weaves a combination of theory and practice to articulate moral and ethical values that facilitate rational application of law. It envisions legal arrangements imbued with commitments of the Jesuit tradition, including the dignity of persons, the common good and compassion for the poor. This reflective collection of inquiry evokes a signature motif of the BC faculty in dozens of different legal subjects.
