Setting New Standards in Legal Education and Among Christian Law Schools

Because our rigorous legal skills program is taught from a Christian worldview, we’ll not only prepare you with the core competency skills you’ll need to practice law, we’ll teach you how to integrate faith and reason into your field. And because we’re approved by the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the American Bar Association (ABA),* you can confidently pursue your law degree knowing that Liberty Law follows national standards.

Graduate “Practice-Ready”

At Liberty Law, you’ll graduate “practice-ready” through our innovative practical skills program. Here, we’ll teach you how to conduct negotiations, depositions, and arguments before a judge and a trial. You’ll learn how to expertly draft legal documents like summary judgments, statutes, and operating agreements.

And you’ll also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of externships that will even further prepare you to practice law.
