Cross and Gavel: New Web Resource for Christian Lawyers and Law Students

Mike Shutt and his crew at the Institute for Christian Legal Studies have created Cross and Gavel, an excellent new web resource for Christian lawyers and law students.

From the site: Cross & Gavel is a comprehensive resource for Christian lawyers and law students who believe that faith is central to law practice and study. We understand that it is not always an easy task to faithfully walk out one’s calling in the law, and we desire to provide information, highlight resources, locate training, and network people seeking to be faithful ministers of justice in the kingdom.
