Experience a full-immersion week of law school at Liberty University School of Law. This event is designed to train you to understand the judicial process, practice case law, and develop excellent oral argumentation skills.

 

Pre-event study prepares you to jump into a one-of-a-kind intellectual experience wherein you benefit from Law School professors’ interactive lectures on topics including “Introduction to Legal Reasoning” and “Foundations of Law.”  The special emphasis on appreciating the Judeo-Christian roots of our judicial system integrates biblical worldview into both study and conversation.

 

TeenPact staff and Liberty Law School professors coach students through the appellate process as they analyze facts and issues of a realistic case file, write a legal brief, and craft oral arguments.

 

The highlight of the week is undoubtedly the two-day Moot Court Tournament where students argue their case against opposing counsel before a panel of judges. Congratulations to the past two Moot Court Tournament Champions: Spencer Rothfuss (’16) and Hope Turner (’17).

 

Beyond these thrilling academic opportunities, Judicial students enjoy all the distinctive elements of a TeenPact event.  These include morning worship and devotionals, intentional small-group time, afternoon free time, and evening sessions.

 

If you are looking to deepen your relationship with Christ and continue developing the skills of an effective servant leader, join us for TeenPact Judicial!
