Summary:This book is about conscience and love in making judicial decisions. It looks at law not as a body of rigid rules applied by emotionless judges, but as a creative process in which the judges make their fundamental choices. The judges do love and they do hate when they make their decisions. On the basis of the rich tradition of Christian ethics, the author addresses the question: why should the judges love those who are affected by their decisions, and how do they do that? Readership: Academics and anyone interested in philosophy of law and legal ethics
