Since its founding in 2008, St. Paul Inside the Walls has had an active outreach to attorneys who would like to learn more about or deepen their practice of the profession of faith, and integrate it into their daily life and practice.
Our Outreach to Catholic Lawyers has sponsored multiple engaging events:
- "Mock" trials conducted by actual attorneys and judges, entitled "Holley vs. Knot: The Trial of God" and "The Trial of St. Peter"
- Modified "Oxford-style" debates, including"Harry Truman in the Court of Conscience"
- Presentations and Conversations, including, "LIfe, Liberty and The Little Sisters of the Poor," "On the Witness Stand: Perspectives on Law, Life and the Lord" (a conversation with a civil lawyer, a canon lawyer, and a civil lawyer turned priest) and "Cross Examination: A Doctor of Theology and Doctor of the Law Considers the Intersection of the Legal Profession and the Profession of Faith"
The Outreach to Catholic Lawyers has initiated
Advocati Christi ,
Catholic lawyers and judges who have entered into an elite fellowship of those who are committed to both the legal profession and the profession of their faith. The membership includes seasoned Founding Fellows, Senior Fellows who act as mentors and guides, and Fellows Elect who are in the process of becoming members.. The Fellowship’s home is at St. Paul Inside the Walls, the Catholic Center for Evangelization in the Diocese of Paterson, located in Madison, New Jersey.
