At the heart of Liberty University School of Law is its unyielding commitment to view law as vocation—a high and noble calling on one’s life. From this lens, we channel our time, talent and treasure to develop lawyers with a passion for law and a purpose for life.
Knowing that law shapes society, we deliver a comprehensive and demanding program of legal education designed to develop leaders in law to serve clients and communities in the profession, practice, judiciary, business and the public. Liberty Law is committed to providing a curriculum that integrates the practical skills needed in a changing and dynamic legal landscape. Our students sharpen their skills through our rigorous lawyering skills program and then apply their skills to improve our communities in clinics, externships and internships.
This educational approach has yielded remarkable results. In 2018, Liberty Law graduates earned the 7th highest bar passage rate in the nation (95.65%) with exam takers in 14 states, and the highest in Virginia. Our 2019 graduates followed this exceptional achievement with a 92% bar pass rate across 13 jurisdictions. Since 2015, Liberty Law graduates have enjoyed a cumulative average pass rate on Virginia’s July Bar Exams of 87.58% for first-time takers. Annually, our students win regional and national titles in skills competitions, and in the last two years, we have been ranked third and fourth nationally in the ABA Competitions Championship.
While these are all important and noteworthy accomplishments, we know the staying power of Liberty as a producer of top legal talent is far greater than just bar exam results. The long-term success of Liberty Law is directly related to the accomplishments and acumen of our alumni. Hence this piece.
