Distinctively Christian, Liberty University School of Law has attracted national attention for its innovative program of legal education, for the performance of its students, and for its outstanding facilities. Bar passage for Liberty's first-time takers of the July 2008 bar exam was 94.4 percent in Virginia. First-time takers in the class of 2008 had a pass rate of 91.4% overall in 13 states. Liberty's three-year Lawyering Skills program is unlike any other. Each student moves a simulated case from initial client interview to court verdict and also develops the practice skills essential to planning client affairs. The ceremonial courtroom, two other mock trial courtrooms, all classrooms, and the law library have the latest technologies. Wireless connectivity is throughout the facility. The lively campus of Liberty University is located in the eastern foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Central Virginia, within driving distance of Washington, D.C.
