Mission Statement

The Saint Thomas More Society of Philadelphia seeks to promote and foster high ethical principles in the legal profession generally and, in particular, in the community of Catholic lawyers; it provides a Catholic voice on issues of relevance to judges, lawyers, public officials, and law students; and, above all, the Society encourages its members to apply the following ideals exemplified by Saint Thomas More in both their personal and professional lives:
• The legal profession is a high calling with corresponding responsibilities to society; • The principal objective of every lawyer is to promote and seek justice; and • The duty of a Catholic lawyer is to remain faithful to the teachings of the Church, at all times, regardless of personal consequences.
