LCF North West Forum
Help! Get me out of law?
Dr David McIlroy, a practising barrister and theologian, shows how a right theology of law can help us survive, and even thrive as Christian lawyers.
Our Speaker: David McIlroy is Head of Chambers at Forum Chambers and visiting Professor in the Centre for Commer- cial Law Studies at Queen Mary University of London, and teaches the Theology of Law course at Spurgeon's College. Through his books (A Biblical View of Law and Justice, A Trinitarian Theology of Law) and many articles, David seeks to deepen people's reflections on justice and to inspire others to take up the LCF challenge of acting justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with God.
