I have a belief that Mercer University has a faith based orientation for future lawyers and legal assistants to be prepared to assist graduates and pre-law graduates to assist ministers and lay people as community organizers-working with ex-inmate re-entry people, school drop outs, and at-risk students to be community leaders and business organizers to replace our prison economy. Is this correct?
