Nondiscrimination Policy

Liberty University School of Law does not engage in unlawful discrimination or harassment because of race, color, ancestry, religion, age, sex, national origin, pregnancy or childbirth, disability, or military veteran status in its educational programs and activities.  Liberty University School of Law maintains its Christian mission and reserves its right to discriminate on the basis of religion to the extent that applicable law respects its right to act in furtherance of its religious objectives.  Specifically, Liberty University School of Law accepts the teaching of the traditional biblical view with regard to sexual conduct outside a biblically ordained marriage between a natural-born man and a natural-born woman.  Consistent with those teachings, Liberty University School of Law does not discriminate solely on the basis of an individual’s professed sexual orientation, but only with regard to accompanying sexual conduct or other actions that undermine essential elements of the University’s Christian character. 

The following persons have been designated to coordinate Liberty University’s compliance with certain anti-discrimination laws:  Coordinator of LU Online Disability Academic Support at (434) 592-5417 or; Director of Disability Academic Support (Residential) at (434) 582-2159 or; Director of Title IX at (434) 582-8948 or
