You guys know that Liberty just received provisional accreditation right?

Check it out:

Personally, I really don't know why everyone is freaked out about Liberty being a Christian school and having a law school. I can rattle off about 30 schools that are the same. Anyway...enjoy.

The person who started this topic didn't give any specific reasons as to why people shouldn't go to Liberty...except for emotionally-laden words.  It sorta makes me questions if such a person actually did attend Liberty, and if so, why, in the first place?

I was just about to post this. It seems like the ABA is giving a lot of schools provisional approval this year....

I'm pretty sure simply BEING Catholic is an infranction worthy offence as far as they are concerned.

Yea, probably. I agree with kruddler about the school.

That is exactly the kind of stuff that scares me. I am afraid that this country is starting to look more like Saudi Arabia with religiou zealots running the show.

I think Shane had the right thought in regard to this. Conversely, Kruddler is way off base.

Law schools may be Catholic or Christian in name but I have yet to come into contact with one that has any real religious emphasis. I'm currently at a Catholic LS and if you didn't know it already, probably would be hard to tell. Close friend of mine from undergrad actually goes to Catholic (DC) Law and it's secular in academic application.

With how chest-thumpingly politically correct and liberal law schools are these days, I would find it hard to locate a respectable law school that truly imposes any sort of religion (would make teaching the Free Exercise Clause a bit tricky as well).

The exception of course being our wonderful friends, the fundamental Christians. I'm pretty sure the big JC would get sanctioned for his hippie long hair and sandals at Liberty. I think itís an abomination for Liberty to get any sort of nod by the ABA.
