Law school, seminary cited in Christianity Today
Liberty University School of Law is part of an article on “Redeeming Law” in the August 2008 issue of Christianity Today, a leading Christian news magazine. The article examines law schools across the country that combine Christian thought and the law and emphasize law as a form of Christian service.
In the article, Liberty is pointed out as one of the 15 schools out of nearly 200 approved by the American Bar Association to have a “distinctively Christian mission.”
Author Tim Stafford writes: “Housed in a gigantic refurbished factory, the Lynchburg, Virginia, school looms over its parking lots like a stamping mill for culture warriors. But appearances are deceiving. Inside the factory’s walls are well-appointed, high-tech classrooms and offices. … ”
“Students praise the warmly supportive community they experience at Liberty,” it goes on to say. “They praise the 89 percent bar pass rate in their first graduating class.”
Liberty is mentioned alongside Notre Dame, Regent, Pepperdine and University of Georgia law schools.

Liberty also received recent mention in the magazine’s July issue. In the article, “A New Day for Apologetics,” Liberty University was called one of the “hotbeds of apologetics education,” alongside Biola University, Talbot School of Theology and Southern Evangelical Seminary.
These schools, the article reads, “are crammed with students pursuing graduate degrees in philosophy and apologetics.”
The article includes interviews with top apologists of the day, including Lee Strobel and Dinesh D’Souza, who both spoke at Liberty earlier this year.
