Grant M. Rost
After joining Liberty University School of Law in 2005 as the Director of Student Affairs, Grant M. Rost immediately began impacting students by counseling them through their law school experience, coordinating disability accommodation programs, and providing guidance to the newly-forming Student Bar Association. In 2007 he accepted a faculty position as Lawyering Skills Instructor.
Rost brings both experience and excellence to the classroom. As a member of Akron’s nationally-ranked trial teams, he made his mark in the mock trial arena as a co-winner of a Best Advocate award, and he was later selected to coach one of their teams. Students from high school to law school have trained under his leadership and have advanced to a variety of state and national championships. Rost has twice coached Liberty University’s undergraduate moot court team to a ninth-place tie in the American Collegiate Moot Court National Championships. He also coaches the mock trial team for Liberty University School of Law.
Rost gained much of his law practice experience while serving in the large personal injury law firm of Elk & Elk in Mayfield Heights, Ohio. He developed the firm’s HIPAA compliance forms and procedures, as well as researched and drafted the firm’s premises liability intake manual.
Both a practical and an academic achiever, Rost made the Dean’s list as an undergraduate student and law student, and was admitted to Mensa in 1998.
