Welcome to Oak Brook College of Law

Founded in 1995, Oak Brook College of Law is a California-based, mission-driven school with a unique approach to and perspective on legal education. Oak Brook’s mission is to train “advocates of truth, counselors of reconciliation, and ministers of justice,” providing aspiring Christian attorneys legal education which values the Biblical foundations of law as well as this nation’s history and heritage, while emphasizing academic excellence, character development and spiritual vitality. Oak Brook sources its students from those within the Christian community who are called to live out their faith in professions of law and/or statesmanship.

Oak Brook uses an innovative curriculum which, coupled with a correspondence/distance-learning model, combines flexibility with accountability to maximize learning effectiveness. Additionally, Oak Brook provides opportunities to gain real-world experience while studying law, to bridge the gap between academic knowledge and legal practice. Within this context, Oak Brooks arms its students with the tools to tailor their studies to meet their individual needs and learning styles, resulting in a highly personalized, highly effective Christian law school experience.

“Not only has Oak Brook provided the practical skills for a successful legal career, it supplied the spiritual basis to sustain me as I seek to serve Christ in the legal profession. The example and testimony of the faculty have been a constant source of strength and encouragement, just as the solid, practical education has stood me in good stead, whether drafting a simple letter to a client, or drafting a brief to the U.S. Supreme Court."
Rebekah M. -  Class of 2008
