Law and Ethics: Conscience, compromise and living distinctively


What are the ethical dilemmas that a Christian lawyer might face? How should we deal with issues of conscience and what does it mean to practise law in a distinctively Christian way?

Many of us encounter tricky ethical issues from time to time in our legal careers. How do we decide as Christian lawyers where the boundaries are and when to say 'yes' or 'no'? Even more challengingly, how can we positively model the example of Jesus in a fast-paced and demanding legal world?

In this short video, Niazi Fetto KC (barrister at 2 Temple Gardens), shares his experiences of the ethical dilemmas Christian lawyers can face and offers some practical wisdom on how to live a distinctive Christ-like life in the legal profession.

If you would like to discuss these issues in a group then a hand-out with discussion questions and further resources is available here.
