Center for Law & Government

Former Virginia congressman Robert Hurt serves as Vice President of Liberty University and as Director of the new Center for Law & Government.

In collaboration with Liberty’s School of Law and Helms School of Government, the Center for Law & Government will be a state and national stage for the free exchange of ideas and the robust debate of issues of national and state importance. In addition, the center will harness broad expertise in promoting public policy that is consistent with those fundamental principles of American freedom: self-government, free enterprise, and the rule of law. Finally, the center will ensure that every Liberty student graduates with a full appreciation for our Constitution and for the value of our freedom - and will be prepared to engage in a new generation of American statesmanship.
