About Faulkner Law
The Faulkner Law Difference
As a small, Christian law school in the Capital City of Alabama, Faulkner Law students have a unique advantage through the rigorous curriculum and hands-on experience that we provide. We seek students who will not only succeed academically, but who also have a desire to use their legal degree to seek justice and serve their communities – wherever that may be.
Why should you choose Faulkner Law?
- Foundations Curriculum – Through taking an in-depth look at some of the most prominent fundamental ideas and institutions of our legal system, our Foundations of Law course allows our students to understand how the law shapes our culture, and what their role is in their pursuit of justice.
- Winning Advocacy Program – The Faulkner Law Advocacy Program provides practice-oriented advocacy training, focused on the skills necessary for success in every phase of litigation. With 10 national championship titles, 16 regional championship titles, and over 50 individual student awards since 2010, we are confident that our students gain invaluable experience that prepares them for success far beyond Faulkner Law.
- Blackstone & Burke Center for Law and Liberty at Faulkner Law – The Blackstone & Burke Center for Law and Liberty promotes the principles of the common law tradition and American constitutionalism. It coordinates educational programs, research initiatives, and judicial conferences that examine the norms and nurture the institutions of ordered liberty.
- Faulkner Law Legal Clinics – Faulkner Law students have access to live client clinics, externships, and clerkship opportunities within the capital city. Our three legal clinics – the Family Violence Clinic, Elder Law Clinic, and Mediation Clinic – serve the dual purpose of training our students for successful careers beyond law school, and enabling them to further the mission of the school through service to our community.
- Faulkner Law Family – Being a small, Christian law school, our students are able to learn in an environment that allows and encourages civil discourse, while maintaining a level of care and respect for everyone – regardless of your beliefs. With a low faculty to student ratio, our students have the distinctive opportunity to form relationships with their professors both in and out of the classroom, and are offered a true open-door policy.
