Our Purpose

The purpose of the Program on Biblical Law and Christian Legal Studies is to equip, encourage, and inspire students to lead with values and purpose. The program offers the opportunity for students to integrate law, leadership, and life through the study, debate, and application of the teachings of the Bible. We help students connect learning with conviction, inquiry with relationship, ideas with character, research with hope, gifts with purpose, and values with action. We seek to inspire confidence in biblical law as a source of truth powerful enough to meet global challenges, yet personal enough to inspire individual purpose.
“He has shown you, O man,
what is good;
And what does the LORD
require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly
with your God?”
Micah 6:8 (NKJV)
