Description & History

It is one of the goals of the Hellenic Law Society of Northern California to preserve and foster an appreciation of Hellenism and Hellenic principles. These principles, which are especially vital for members of the legal profession, include the following:

  1. A commitment to individual liberty, within an ordered society, reflected in the originally Hellenic idea of democracy;
  2. A commitment to the rule of law as an instrument of justice in a civilized polity, rather than as the inspirited mechanism of technocracy or bureaucracy; and
  3. A love of learning and commitment to preservation of that spirit of free inquiry (particularly into ethical matters) which may as well be named by the term the ancient Hellenes used, "philosophy," in its best and broadest sense.

In other words, one of the mottoes of the Society is:

Liberty, Law with Justice, and Learning.
