ROANOKE, Va. -- The Rev. Jerry Falwell will open a law school this month in hopes of training a generation of attorneys who will fight for conservative causes.

''We want to infiltrate the culture with men and women of God who are skilled in the legal profession,'' Falwell said in a telephone interview Tuesday with the Associated Press. ''We'll be as far to the right as Harvard is to the left.''

Graduates of the law school -- part of Falwell's Liberty University in Lynchburg, which is affiliated with his Baptist ministry -- could tackle such issues as abortion rights and gay marriage, Falwell said. Classes begin Monday for the first-year class of 61 law students.

''I'd love to fight Roe v. Wade,'' said incoming law student Heidi Thompson, 33, a Liberty graduate who has spent the past few years working as a high school counselor in Orlando, Fla.

More power to them.

They could do a whole lot better and look far less ridiculous by going into international contracts or mergers + acquisitions - and just write checks to their sick little causes to hearts' content.

Be afwaid...be vewy, vewy afwaid folks!

I am always leery of anyone who is using God in their agenda. Didn't the 9/11 hijackers, OBL and other use the same reference - That theirs is a mission of God/Allah/Bhudda/< insert favorite deity's name here >?

Great news!
Looking forward to whipping their pansy asses in court!
Those that say they have God on their side----rarely do...
Brgds.

Reality check...law school is very expensive...it's likely he's doing it for financial gain---pretty much like those corporate lawyers who 'write themselves their own checks...."

In other words, it isn't a real law school-it's to brainwash a bunch of people to use the law for right-wing religious/political gains. And you think the law is fucked up now? Wait till this jackass gets a hold of it.

And anyone, be they Muslim or Christian, who invoke the name of God as being on their side, are the most dangerous people on earth. Anyone who claims to speak for the Almighty, is capable of the biggest sins.

Current law schools - including Harvard - turn out plenty of rightwing attorneys. The Rev Falwell is just creating his own version of a madrassa right here in the US of A.

Great, more lawyers to drive the economy down.

And that isn't a joke, a study has shown that for each percentage increase in the percentage of lawyers in a countries population, there is a corresponding decrease in GNP.

Slightly off topic, but can anybody guess how much a first year lawyer in top NYC corporate law firms makes?
















$135,000 a year, plus bonus!

Is that a lot?

Oh good grief. It's bad enough working with attorneys who did their undergraduate work at Bob Jones University. Just what we need - a crop of evangelical attorneys on a mission from God to turn back the clock on women's rights, civil rights for minorities, scientific research, and education. Time to start getting prepared for more Scopes trials, I imagine.

Just what America needs. A bunch of Falwell disciples practicing law.

What a load of crap!  Wow!
Hello, there saviour George W. Bush graduated from Havard and so did his father.

Of course, Falwell's law school does not require the LSAT's for admission so we will see what kind of quality lawyers come out of there.

LOL!
Do you even have to have a high school diploma?
After all, they think high school is just a breeding ground for liberalism!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Look on the bright side, it'll be at least 3 years before it can get accredited.
