Legal argumentation as preparation for spiritual progress

December 8, 2013

I was just now reading the Daily Meditation by Richard Rohr on paradox and apparent contradiction, and I started thinking about how law students are taught to harmonize seemingly contradictory precedents in Anglo-American case law.  I suspect this goes on in religious law study, too, but I don’t actually know.  Anyway, it struck me that my law school preparation might have come in handy for more than just my current “occupation” with bureaucratic paperwork for family matters.
