Abstract

I want to address three separate, but related, questions about religiously affiliated law schools. First, why should the legal academy and the bar accept religiously affiliated law schools? Second, why would a church start a law school? Third, why should religious believers who attend or graduate from law schools that are not religiously affiliated care about them?

Keywords: Religiously affiliated law schools, legal education, morality, civility, secularization, diversity, freedom of religion, eternal significance of legal study
