RESTORING TRUTH IN LAW
as trained lawyers will have a role that is vitally important," said William
Weidenaar, keynote speaker at the 2006 Law, Justice and Culture Institute's
graduation luncheon, Friday, June 2, in the Ozinga Chapel Grand Lobby.
Weidenaar is a partner with Ruff, Weidenaar & Reidy and is heavily
involved in serving on the boards of various Christian organizations.
Weidenaar encouraged the
pre-law students to be involved in politics. "It's hard to escape the conclusion
that America's political atmosphere has been poisoned," he said. "We need
Christians with convictions, roots, and a moral compass."
The mission of the Center
for Law and Culture is to recover the traditional Judeo-Christian understanding
that law is based on a moral order grounded in God's authority as Creator."

Executive Director and co-founder Professor Charles Emmerich in the August
