Christian Legal Education
Online legal education taught from a Biblical and historical foundation.
Quality, Christian legal education delivered through an online platform
Foundation of Truth
All laws are based upon policies, and policies, in turn, are based upon a perspective of truth. Oak Brook College of Law (OBCL) teaches the philosophy of government and law articulated by our Founders in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, based upon the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God and certain self-evident truths.
Streamlined Education and Professional Development
OBCL employs an online model for education. This model allows students to tailor their education within a structured framework to meet their learning style. The flexible study schedule also provides the student the opportunity to seek internships in a legal field of interest; further enhancing the educational experience.
OBCL graduate, Mark, said it well “. . . (OBCL) is a place where you are surrounded by peers who will be your friends for the rest of your life and by professors who will help not only with the academic subjects, but be mentors as you enter your professional career…”

From Our Graduates
"The education I received at OBCL helped me gain such an important perspective before beginning my career at a law office. Each class began with presenting the legal concept through a biblical lens, then set the historical context, and provided in-depth explanation of the topic."
OBCL fostered a very collegial atmosphere among students that is unique. It’s great to be a part of community that is encouraging and caring. The lifelong friendships formed through OBCL have been an important part of my professional development.
“There is no way I could be doing what I am doing right now if I hadn’t gone to OBCL. A traditional school wouldn’t have allowed me to gain anywhere near the same life experience while I studied. Because of OBCL, I not only obtained my JD, but I was also able to gain over 3 years of experience in a law office environment by the time I graduated.”
“As an alumna of OBCL, I consider my OBCL friends and professors to be like family. Students become lifelong friends - I see examples of it in the life of every OBCL alumnus I know.”
"After 15 years as a registered nurse, I became passionate to practice law. Oak Brook was the answer to my prayers. I was able to study law while building my relationship with Christ, working full time in the ICU, and raising 2 teenagers as a single mom. On top of that, I graduated debt free!"
