Integrating Faith  &
the study of Law

Welcome To

Law Student Ministries

I think we can all agree that law school is stressful! It leaves far too little time for spiritual development and provides even less opportunity to explore what Harold Berman once called the “fundamental unity” of law and religion. Law Student Ministries (LSM) is here to change that!

LSM does this in two ways. First, by encouraging and nurturing Christian law students through the provision of mentors and resources aimed at fostering spiritual growth, vocational stewardship, academic excellence, and compassionate outreach. Second, by establishing and maintaining vibrant witnessing communities of law students on every law school campus in the nation and at key Christian colleges.

“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:17 (ESV)

What We Do

Spiritual Formation

Helping students develop their love and relationship with God and neighbor through various discussion groups and public programs.

Vocational Stewardship

Helping students pursue an integrative excellence in their calling through various forums and mentorship opportunities.

Academic Excellence

Helping students thrive in the academic marketplace through classroom excellence and public engagement on ideas impacting law, religion, and public policy.

Community Service

Helping students better love their schools and cities through selfless and compassionate outreach.

Serve Your Campus

LSM serves all Christian law students—providing them spiritual, material, and legal resources to not only exist on campus, but also to thrive in their ability to integrate their faith with the study of law.

Be encouraged that the investment you make to start or strengthen a CLS law student chapter is a labor that others have begun, and others will eventually enter into. 

Wherever you are, LSM is here to help!
