Law and grace. Do these go together?
Can you be ‘in the law’ and a Christian?
Sir Jeremy Cooke is a senior High Court Judge and a devout Christian. How has his faith influenced his life and practice, and what difference does it make to his judgments? Sir Jeremy is an inspiring speaker, and will address matters at the heart of Christian faith.
This event is sponsored by the Swansea University Theology Public Lecture series, in association with the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship, and they warmly invite CICC members to attend also.
