Of liberty I would say that, in the whole plenitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual.

Thomas Jefferson

What is a Christian Law School?

Is a Christian law school one where students and faculty profess a faith in Jesus as the Christ? Is it a place where Christian law is taught? Is there such a thing as “Christian law?” Is the substance of what is taught at a Christian law school different than at other law schools? All these questions deserve answers—particularly for people considering applying to law school. Read more...


Statement of Mission

The mission of Oak Brook College of Law and Government Policy is to train individuals who desire to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ through service as advocates of truth, counselors of reconciliation, and ministers of justice in the fields of law and government policy.

Perspective and Methods
Oak Brook College approaches law and government policy from a Biblical and historical perspective. Oak Brook College students are committed to the self-evident truths articulated by our Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence and they reject the faith of evolution and the religion of secular humanism. Students learn the Biblical foundations of the Common Law and are challenged to make conventional application of these principles to resolve today’s legal and governmental issues.
