Jesuit institutions are in an ideal position to advance the global change that must come in legal education. The lack of attention paid to the issue of justice in contemporary legal education is linked to certain features of the prevailing theory of justice. I introduce the position of Amartya Sen, who criticises this theory for being institutionalist and exclusionary. The dimensions of inculturation and dialogue that the Society of Jesus considers essential for its mission lead to an overcoming of these problems.
