Pro Bono Publico


THE JESUIT MISSION IN EDUCATION

MULVANEY LAW OFFICES, PLLC strives to live up to the Jesuit mission in education instilled at Gonzaga Law School. Below is a quote from the leader of the Jesuits describing the mission:

The service of faith through the promotion of justice is the mission that must be integrated as a priority into each Jesuit work.Our purpose in education, then, is to form men and women "for others." The Society of Jesus has always sought to imbue students with values that transcend the goals of money, fame and success. We want graduates who will be leaders concerned about society and the world in which they live. We want graduates who desire to eliminate hunger and conflict in the world and who are sensitive to the need for more equitable distribution of the world's goods. We want graduates who seek to end sexual and social discrimination and who are eager to share their faith with others. In short, we want our graduates to be leaders-in-service. That has been the goal of Jesuit education since the sixteenth century. It remains so today.

   Peter Hans Kolvenbach, S.J. Superior General of the Society of Jesus
