Hands-On Political Experience
Develop skills in politics and policy while you prepare to engage in today’s generation of American statesmanship. Through the Center for Law & Government (CLG) you’ll gain an even greater appreciation for our Constitution and for the value of our freedom.
The CLG, a collaboration between the School of Law and Helms School of Government at Liberty University, is a state and national stage for the free exchange of ideas and the robust debate of issues of national and state importance.
Harnessing broad expertise, the Center promotes public policy that is consistent with fundamental principles of American freedom: self-government, free enterprise, and the rule of law.
At the CLG
Former U.S. Congressman Robert Hurt (Virginia’s 5th District) serves as Executive Director of the Center for Law & Government. Prior to joining Congress, Hurt was a state senator and delegate, councilman, and an attorney.
