Full Scholarships Announced for Liberty University School of Law

Jan 19, 2004

Dr. Jerry Falwell, Chancellor of Liberty University, has just announced that full tuition scholarships are available for up to 50 academically qualified applicants for Liberty University School of Law. Partial scholarships are also available for those who do not qualify for full scholarships.

The law school is set to open in August 2004. The activity and excitement about the School of Law is building every day. I have the pleasure of serving on the Board of Trustees for Liberty University and am the Chairman of the Steering Committee for the School of Law. I just returned from Lynchburg, Virginia, where we had productive planning meetings in preparation for the launch of the law school.

It’s not too late to apply for the entering class that will begin in August 2004. Later this year Liberty Counsel will expand by opening an office at the law school, while maintaining its headquarters in Orlando. Liberty University will also partner with Liberty Counsel to open the Center for Constitutional Litigation and Policy. I’ll give you more details on the Center at another time.

Other good news includes the fact that Dean Bernard Dobranski has agreed to serve as the law school’s ABA consultant. Dean Dobranski has served as a law professor at Notre Dame, dean of Detroit School of Law, dean of Catholic University School of Law and currently serves as dean of Ave Maria School of Law. Ave Maria is a newly accredited law school. In 2003, Ave Maria graduated its first class. Ave Maria pulled off what seemed impossible up till now by having a 93% bar passage rate for the first class, beating out every other school in Michigan, including the University of Michigan. This feat has never before been accomplished by a new law school. This bar passage rate is phenomenal. We are pleased that Dean Dobrankski has agreed to serve as the law school’s consultant.
