Tue 14 Dec

International SYL Book Club

  • Venue Zoom
  • Time 5:30pm – 6:30pm

What is the point of my work as a lawyer? Is the legal profession just a means to the end of earning money and enjoying life or is there a wider purpose for my work? Does God really care about the way I study or practice law?

In partnership with other organizations (see below) from Africa and Latin America, LCF are organizing an international book club for law students and young lawyers (SYL). We will study the highly regarded "Every Good Endeavor" by Tim Keller. The book club will be online, free of charge, and we will gather monthly to discuss each chapter.

Tuesdays, monthly at 5.30pm (London time) for 1 hour. Once you register, you will receive the Zoom details for all sessions.

The opportunity to assemble people from different countries to discuss the book, share experiences and applications in the various contexts will hopefully be fruitful for all participants.

We encourage the participants to purchase the book/electronic file (from £3,99). If you have any difficulties in acquiring the book, email us and we will work to provide you with a copy of the book.
