TeenPact Judicial provides students with a one-of-a-kind, law-oriented academic experience on the beautiful campus of Liberty University School of Law in Lynchburg, Virginia.

The program balances an in-depth survey of all major areas of law, with training–-by gifted, Christian Liberty Law School professors–-in courtroom skills such as raising evidentiary objections and cross-examining witnesses.  There is special emphasis on appreciating the Judeo-Christian roots of our judicial system and integrating a biblical worldview and the study of law.

Additionally, the program is intended to equip students for the task of discerning God’s will and identifying their unique talents and aptitudes.

A key ingredient of TeenPact Judicial is a unique “moot court” experience where TeenPact staff and Liberty Law school professors coach each student through the appellate process:  from analyzing the facts and legal issues of a realistic case file, to drafting their legal brief and crafting a legal argument, to presenting their case against opposing counsel before an appellate court.

Even a student who has no intention of entering the field of law will benefit from honing or even discovering the skills of legal reasoning, “issue identification” and persuasion.  And, of course, Judicial delivers on the popular TeenPact distinctives:  activities that are “hands on,” edifying, intellectually stimulating, and fun.  We hope you’ll join us for TeenPact Judicial.
