Whether it's newsworthy or not, I just wanted to mention that I'll be the first student from Cedarville University to attend the Liberty University School of Law. (law.liberty.edu
I applied in November and was accepted in January. This past week I received news that I was given the Dean's Scholarship, signed by the Dean Staver, which covers 50% of the tuition cost. I found Liberty University School of Law to be incredibly impressive during a visit last October, far more than others I had visited. It easily became my top choice when it came time to apply.
They gained ABA accreditation in a record 18 months and have been placing extremely well against "top" law schools in many of the regional debate tournaments. This is in large part due to their six semester "lawyering skills" program - never before attempted at any other law school in the nation.
I see big things for their future, their Supreme Court chambers replica was unveiled last week and the message it sends about their future grads is almost prophetic in nature. http://www.liberty.edu/academics/law/index.cfm?PID=13575
Just because they are a Christian law school doesn't mean their sole purpose is to train lawyers to fight for religious issues. Page thirteen of the viewbook has a comprehensive list of available litigation and planning tracks. I am currently interested in intellectual property law and government law, but I should have a better idea about what path God has for me after my first year is complete. http://www.liberty.edu/media/1190/documents/School%20of%20Law%202007%20Viewbook.pdf
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about anything, thank you!
