LA: Law School

(NEW SITE)

"I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself."-1 Cor. 4:3


I've (Sal) been meeting students at UMM going to Law School, so I decided to do a page on this.


Lawyers in the Bible

"But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
Then one of them, [which was] a lawyer, asked [him a question], tempting him, and saying, Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
"-Matthew 22

"..4 By justice a king gives a country stability, but one who is greedy for bribes tears it down... 7 The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern....14 If a king judges the poor with fairness, his throne will always be secure.... 26 Many seek an audience with a ruler, but it is from the LORD that man gets justice."-Proverbs 29

    365 DAYS OF MARCHING - THE AMADOU DIALLO STORY - TRAILER

    "THE AMADOU DIALLO STORY The streets of New York City have certainly witnessed its share of acts of civil disobedience, violence and rebellion. Dating back as far as the Draft Riots of 1863, very often, the disenfranchised would take to the streets when opposing the government�s unfair policies and practices. Eight years ago when an unarmed African immigrant by the name of Amadou Diallo was shot at 41 times (hit 19 times) by 4 New York City Police Officers, the people took to the streets charging the NYPD with police brutality. Over the next two years that followed, a series of marches and protests was set into motion that would forever change the lives of New Yorkers. At its conceptual root�spearheaded by Rev Al Sharpton and the National Action Network, was the march for justice for Diallo. However, in the midst of the struggles a new breed of protestor began to emerge. Along the side of the activist stood politicians, students & professors, unions, and laborers. The shout of �No Justice No Peace!�What do we want? JUSTICE!� Now became �What do we want?�BOOKS! HOUSING! JOBS! Diallo�s death became a symbol for justice on all fronts. 360 Media recounts this bitter and yet compelling part of New York City history in the upcoming documentary entitled �365 Days of Marching�AMADOU� DIRECTED, WRITTEN & PRODUCED by Veronica Keitt CO-PRODUCED BY Michael Drake, Ozzie Thompson, Nat Woods, Darryl Stith SPECIAL APPEARANCES by Rev Al Sharpton, Seiko & Kadiatou Diallo, the parents of Amadou Diallo, David N.
