Founded in 1852 as the Lawyers' Prayer Union, the subsequently renamed Lawyers' Christian Fellowship has a long history of uniting and equipping Christian lawyers and witnessing to members of the legal profession.
Christianity has brought enormous historical benefit within the British legal system. LCF, with its former patrons Lord Mackay and Lord Denning, continues in that tradition. We want to see society served by our legal system bringing people justice in substance as well as proper process, and to see such justice really helping the most vulnerable where it counts on the ground. In an age of scandals and corruption we want to help encourage an uncompromising commitment to integrity among everyone involved in the law.
Today LCF has a membership of more than 2,500 Christian lawyers and law students, with a network of regional groups spanning Britain, and international links which are particularly strong in East Africa.
