Christian Legal Society
The Christian Legal Society (CLS) provides a community for students who are striving to unite their faith with their legal education and future careers in the law. Weekly meetings are an opportunity for students to enjoy a time of fellowship and encouragement in the midst of the challenging law school environment. CLS participates in local food drives by building Thanksgiving Baskets for local families, and also puts together Christmas presents for children in the community. In addition, CLS hosts “Dog Days of Finals” every semester, partnering with a local animal shelter that brings puppies to the school for a fun, stress-relieving study break. The students in CLS seek to be a light on the University’s campus and in the legal community at large.
