“RELIGIOUS LAWYERS AS CATALYST FOR SOCIAL CHANGE” THREE DAYS WORKSHOP OF CATHOLIC RELIGIOUS LAWYERS IN INDIA

Rationale: “On the contrary I feel that the entry of religious persons to lawyering profession will only add lusture to the profession. The profession needs selfless dedicated persons to take up the causes of the downtrodden and of environmental protection, without being concerned with the fee paid.” (K. Balakrishnan Nair, J. in Mary Tresa P.J. @ Sr. Teena Jose Cmc vs. Bar Council of Kerala). Thus religious lawyers have a greater role to play in the justice administration system.
