About Our Philosophy

 

Grounded in the Biblical Worldview

"A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of Saint Thomas Aquinas, an unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal and natural law."
-Martin Luther King in his Letter from Birmingham Jail (April 1963) 

The Bible and traditional views of the law and the legal system provide the foundation for Liberty University’s Pre-Law program, and each Pre-Law course incorporates the Biblical worldview into its lectures and course work. The Rule of Law is exalted as the proper foundation for a free society. This acknowledgment of a higher Law that binds all mankind is crucial for a proper understanding of man’s roles in creating and enforcing society’s laws.

 

Focused on Critical Thinking and Practical Skills

The Pre-Law program offers a broad Biblically-based education designed to give future law students the skills to perform well on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT), and to excel at the rigors of law school.

The Helms School offers courses that are specifically designed to hone students’ critical thinking skills, and to enhance students’ performance once they enter law school. Practically, the Center for Pre-Law Studies provides resources to assist students in the law school application process including choosing law schools, preparing for the LSAT and crafting a winning personal statement.
