Keith Faulkner" border="0"><br><br>This past year has been an outstanding one for Liberty Law, and we thank you for being an important part of it. In August, we welcomed 77 new 1Ls and two transfer students, our largest class in several years. We celebrated the successes of our inaugural class at their 10-year reunion in September and reconnected with numerous other alumni at Homecoming in October and throughout the year. <br><br>
Our bar passage continues to soar! The Class of 2017 conquered the July 2017 bar exam in 18 jurisdictions with a staggering 88% pass rate. They earned a 100% pass rate in 13 jurisdictions, and 84% in Virginia. <br><br>
We launched several new initiatives in 2017 including: the Center for Law &amp; Government, a clinic in conjunction with Virginia Legal Aid Society, the country’s first JD/CFP program, Consitution Week, and advisory boards for the Center for Prosecution and the Wealth Management and Financial Planning program to mention just a few. <br><br>
Our advocacy teams continue to enjoy tremendous success. Most recently, our Moot Court team swept the Notre Dame National Appellate Advocacy Tournament for Religious Freedom, claiming the championship title and winning honors for Best Brief and Best Oralist (the first time Liberty has swept all three awards in the same competition). Additionally, our Arbitration team qualified for the ABA National Championships and traveled to Chicago where they advanced all the way to the seminfinals.<br><br>
Finally, as we prepare for another great year, I’m excited to welcome three new faces to our staff who will help us continue to grow and excel. I invite you to learn more about them in the bios below. I am confident that great things lie ahead for Liberty Law as we continue to train <strong style="font-style: italic; font-weight: normal;"> Champions for Christ </strong>and champions of the law.
<br><br>
God bless,<br>
B. Keith Faulkner <br>

We are proud to partner with these organizations in our support of CASA of Central Virginia. This organization, which advocates for abused and neglected children in the greater Lynchburg area, directly aligns with our belief that the practice of law is a calling and a means to make a difference in the lives of others. We thank CASA for all they do for the community, and we thank our fellow sponsors for their support of this important mission.
