Center for Law & Government

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 Center for Law & Government

Joel Cox

After retiring from police service, Dr. Joel Cox transitioned to full-time teaching at Liberty University. Dr. Cox sees his mission as training young men and women in the praxis of policing to become Christian influencers in the broad spectrum of the criminal justice industry. Dr. Cox serves as co-chair of the Center for Law & Government as well as Interim Dean for the Helms School of Government.

Morse Tan

Ambassador Morse H. Tan served as the first Asian-American Ambassador at Large in U.S. history, and he is currently the second Korean-American law school dean in the nation’s history. Dean Tan also serves as the co-chair of the Center for Law & Government.
