Liberty University School of Law students have a unique opportunity to participate in constitutional litigation with one of the most prominent public interest firms in our country, Liberty Counsel. Located at Green Hall, participating students gain practical litigation and non-litigation experience through both paid and unpaid externship programs throughout the academic year and during the summer break. The capstone of the summer program includes spending a day at the Supreme Court as current opinions are read in addition to a personal tour of the Library of Congress.
Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit litigation, education and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of human life and the traditional family. Established in 1989, Liberty Counsel is an international organization with offices in Florida; Virginia; Washington, D.C.; Israel, and hundreds of affiliate attorneys across the nation. Our law students have participated in constitutional litigation cases with precedent-setting implications involving religious liberties and controversies erupting across the United States.
For Liberty University School of Law students, nearly every case tried is unique, and many address issues never before tried in the history of the country. Students are actively involved in every phase of the litigation of cases that directly impact the culture and are reshaping the legal landscape of America.
