Description of Programs

Liberty University School of Law seeks to develop a culture of service among its law students, faculty, staff, and administration. Throughout the entire culture of the School of Law community a spirit of service and volunteerism is modeled and encouraged along with pro bono for all persons licensed to practice law. Faculty and administration encourage students to apply the practical skills they learn in law school to a lifetime of public service. Apart from the spirit of service that we seek to instill in every student, there are multiple opportunities for students to become involved in either volunteer or public service. Street Law is a student-led outreach within the School of Law sponsored by the Child Advocacy Society. During the academic year students engage youth in the local detention center and group homes through a prepared curriculum. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) is a student program operating under the auspices of the Business and Transaction Law Society that provides income tax preparation services for elderly and low-income residents in the community.

Public Interest Centers


PI Career Support Center

For students seeking public interest positions, the School of Law seeks to place students in opportunities to work in positions for academic credit (externships) and non-academic credit (internships). Some students participate in these programs throughout the academic year; other students serve during one semester or summer. Students working in non-compensated positions are eligible to apply for the Liberty Law Fellowship Program which provides funding for students working in uncompensated positions. The Liberty Law & Policy Mentorship Program provides mentorship to students seeking positions in law and policy related internships, externships, and job placements.
