Justice Lifts the Nations

“Justice Lifts the Nations,” a 1904 mural by Paul Robert, presides in the former Swiss Supreme Court Building in Lausanne, Switzerland. Justice is personified by an imposing lady dressed in radiant white. In her right hand she lifts scales signifying judicial fairness. Her head is surrounded by light suggesting divine illumination. Twelve judges surround her, looking up to her for guidance. In her left hand she holds a sword pointing to a Bible, open and accessible to judges and litigants alike. This artwork encapsulates a message central to Jesus in the Courtroom: throughout the Bible, God teaches true justice to judges, lawyers, and all humanity.
