Inaugural Graduate is First Federal District Clerk

January 15, 2009

Liberty University School of Law is proud to announce its first graduate to serve as a full-time federal district court clerk.

Ryan Lane, a graduate of the law school’s inaugural Class of 2007, served as a clerk in the Arizona Court of Appeals before announcing his clerkship for the United States District Court-District of Arizona.  This is not only a significant achievement for Lane, but also a milestone for Liberty University School of Law.

“We are very proud of the achievement of our students and graduates. In a short time our graduates have landed jobs with state and federal courts, including federal district and appellate courts. Our bar pass rates rival the best schools in the country, and our student competition teams are consistently winning. The legacy of Liberty has already begun,” commented Mathew Staver, Dean of Liberty University School of Law and Founder of Liberty Counsel.

Lane will serve under the Honorable James A. Teilborg with his clerkship commencing in April and continuing to September 2010.

Liberty University School of Law is committed to academic and professional excellence in the context of the Christian intellectual tradition, aspiring to produce graduates who are clear thinkers, skilled legal practitioners, and morally responsible leaders of society. “We are training a new generation of lawyers, judges, educators, policy makers, and world leaders in the rule of law within the context of a Christian worldview,” Staver concluded.
