Item description for Natural Law For Lawyers by J. Budziskewski & Jeffery J. Ventrella...

The cultural chatter about "rights" is often muddled. Are there really "rights"? What is their source? Can we really know where to draw lines, even legal lines? The law's moral basis is something that citizens "can't not know." Clarity does exist. And this truth is something that all people, especially attorneys must understand. In a cogent, but accessible way, Dr. Budzeszewski sets forth the reality of the natural law---the higher lawand in doing so provides clarity and direction for those laboring in law and policy.

Reviews - What do customers think about Natural Law For Lawyers?

The best short introduction to natural law theory out there  Sep 6, 2007
For many years, J. Budziszewski had the unusual distinction of being an evangelical natural law scholar, winsomely expounding Thomistic moral thought in his many scholarly monographs and popular books and articles. In 2004, he was received into the Catholic Church, following years of reflection and goaded on by his denomination's repudiation of basic elements of the natural law. At every stage along the way, he has emphasized that the natural law is for everyone, and has astutely observed the corrosive effects of denying the natural law, on both individuals and culture. Now he has written a terrific little primer titled Natural Law for Lawyers, which somehow manages to cover the history, theory, and application of natural law thinking in less than a hundred-and-fifty pages of bold, lively prose.
Disappointing  Oct 6, 2006
This book will be of little use to lawyers. It gives a basic rehash of natural law's history and fundamental assertions, largely from an orthodox Catholic position that is not deeply explored or challenged. The last two chapters, which potentially deal with applications, are mostly useless to practicing lawyers. The result is an amateurish mishmash that looks to have been hastily thrown together; only those who are really ignorant about natural law will profit much from reading it.

There is certainly room in the field for a really good, searching study of the modern survival of natural law and its relevance to the practice of law today. Unfortunately, this book does not meet the need.
